Penge crash victim's family 'disappointed' at killer's sentence

The family of an aspiring actor and his aunt who were killed when a drug addict crashed his car into them during a police chase have said they are "disappointed" at the length of sentence handed out.

Joshua Dobby, 23, was jailed for 12 years over the deaths of Makayah McDermott, 10, and 34-year-old Rozanne Cooper.

Dobby was being pursued by police in Penge, south London, in August as he drove a stolen black Ford Focus at three times the speed limit down one-way roads and through red lights, before losing control.

The family accused Dobby of showing no remorse over the killings.
