A death crash driver who killed a young motorist after hurtling along a treacherous road at 90mph while “showing off” had his sentence slashed by top judges.

Joseph Weston’s souped-up Ford Fiesta collided head-on with Luke Winter’s Citroen after he “lost control”, sending his car slewing across the central reservation.

Weston (22), was “showing off” in the moments before the impact, Mr Justice Griffith Williams told London’s Appeal Court, and was negotiating the road’s tight bends at great speed.
