Judge Peter Jacobs: Road death cases 'most traumatic'

A judge has said road death crashes are among the "most traumatic" court cases he deals with.

Judge Peter Jacobs was speaking after Wednesday's sentencing at Norwich Crown Court of 19-year-old Eleanor Coleman for causing a crash that killed her teenage friend Ellie Tweed and seriously injured three others.

The five friends had been on a Halloween night out in Norwich and were returning home to Acle early on 1 November last year when Coleman crashed into a lorry on a layby on the A47.
