A banned driver jailed for causing the death of a 16-year-old moped rider, has lost an appeal against his sentence.

Jade Clark, from Ringwood, Hampshire, was hit by 58-year-old Brian Hampton on the A31 in Dorset on 24 February 2013.

Hampton, who admitted causing her death by careless driving and was found guilty of perverting the course of justice, was jailed in January.

The Court of Appeal in London dismissed his appeal against his six-year prison sentence.

Hampton, of Hornash Lane, Shadoxhurst in Kent, was already banned for drink driving at the time of the collision and lied to his wife and the garage where he had his car repaired in a bid to avoid detection.

The railway health and safety consultant claimed he had not known anything about the crash until he was arrested a month later.

Hampton also admitted driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.
