A jockey who killed a boy in a head-on crash while driving on the wrong side of the road has been jailed for two years.

Ahmed Aldubaili, 31, of Dubai, was based in Newmarket, Suffolk, when his Jaguar struck a Renault Clio carrying three-year-old Henry Blacklock.

He admitted causing the boy's death in the crash, which happened in Ashley, Cambridgeshire, in October 2010.

He was sentenced at Cambridge Crown Court.

Aldubaili, of Centre Drive, Newmarket, had pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving, and causing death while driving a vehicle without insurance.

Henry's father was seriously injured in the crash on the B1063, about three miles from the town regarded as the home of horse racing.

A police spokeswoman said Aldubaili would be deported immediately after his release.

PC Pete Bimson said: "This is an extremely sad case and my thoughts are with the family of three-year-old Henry.

"Aldubaili believed he was driving on the correct side of the road but sadly his mistake had tragic consequences that he will now have to live with for the rest of his life. "
