The devastated father of a Langwith Junction man who was killed by a speeding driver ‘showing off’ at 90mph has labelled a high court’s decision to cut his jail term as ‘a massive kick in the teeth’.

Joseph Weston (22), lost control of his souped-up Fiesta to veer onto the wrong side of the road and smash head on into the Citroen Saxo of Luke Winter (24) who died on impact.
