now his family call for drunk drivers to be charged

A couple from Hampshire whose son was killed by a drunk driver say
a consultation about tougher penalties doesn't go far enough.
Motorcyclist Wayne Moores was 28 when he died after a hit and run
The driver was given a six year prison sentence.
The maximum possible penalty for drivers who cause deaths
through dangerous or careless driving under the influence
of drink or drugs is currently 14 years.
But in practice the average sentence given is just under five years.
The Government is considering introducing life sentences
but Wayne Moores' family say all such cases should be
Deeply spiritual, had a huge sense of fun.
Wayne Moore's parents remember a son lost at the age of 28.
He died after being knocked from his motorbike by a drunk
that. -- nothing can prepare a that. -- nothing can prepare a
parent for seeing that. Every day that vision comes in to my mind. I
saw it myself. The driver was given
a six-year sentence driving while under the influence
and served half of that in prison. Wayne's parents feel the current
wording of charges and penalties given don't reflect
the seriousness of road deaths. What message does it
give to the criminal? "Don't worry, you're
just bit careless. No!
It is people, it is lives! Why, when you get in a vehicle
and you drive drunk, and you kill somebody,
why is that not manslaughter? The government is consulting
on whether the maximum sentence for such crimes should be increased
from 14 years to life. Wayne's parents believe that needs
to be backed up by tougher A move they believe would change
attitudes and perhaps save lives. It's too late for us but it is for
other families. Briony, what has the Ministry
of Justice had to say about this? Well we asked the Ministry
of Justice for an interview instead they gave us a statement which says:
"We are determined to make sure those who kill whilst driving under
the influence of alcohol or drugs That is why we are consulting
on plans that will see the maximum sentence for a number of offences
in this area increase No direct answer there
to the question raised by the Moores family over whether these kind
of cases should be treated as manslaughter -
which would be a big legal change. The consultation closes
on the first February - the ministry says it is keen to hear
from all interested The consultation closes

from all interested parties and its response
will be published by May. Four Dorset schoolchildren have
been taken to hospital - over fears they had taken cocaine
at school, believing Police were called to
Broadstone Middle School in Poole on third January -
but they hadn't actually taken any. A 32-year-old man has been arrested
in connection with the incident. A Southampton man's been shot
dead in a Thai resort. It's reported by the Bangkok Post
that father of two Tony Kenway was killed in the drivers seat
of his red Porsche in the car park The Foreign Office has confirmed
it is in contact with local police. The mother of a man from Surrey
accused of trying to assassinate Donald Trump says she's looking
forward to him coming home so he can 20-year-old Michael Sandford
from Dorking went to a Trump rally There he tried to snatch
a policeman's gun. He later said he wanted
to shoot Mr Trump saying Michael Sandford, who has
Asperger's syndrome, was sentenced to 12 months
in prison, but has been told he'll be released in May
because of his good behaviour. Our reporter David Allard has been
speaking to his mum Lynne and he asked her what her reaction
had been when she was first My heart stopped beating
now just burst into Over the subsequent
months when Michael was in detention, what was
it like as a family? I couldn't even speak
to him for five weeks. Continuing to be so far apart has
been tremendously difficult, too. Ultimately the judge at the
sentencing was sympathetic to his mental health issues
and he was given 12 months. What do you hope will
happen when Michael is I hope he gets to come
home to his loving He will have a lot
of care that he still needs and medication
and support but he has a second chance in life
to go forward and make
something of himself. Southampton play the second-leg
of their League Cup semifinal, Claude Puel's side may be
without captain Virgil van Dijk who was injured
against Leicester on Saturday. They go in to the game
with a 1-0 lead. We are in a situation, of course,
I think it is not sufficient to stay just one goal up.
And it would be important to score. Days of sub-zero weather have led
to long stretches of the Kennet Many narrow boats are trapped
in the ice, unable to move. It's also causing problems
for the Canal and River Trust - which is trying to keep its winter
maintenance and repair These boats are going nowhere any
time soon. While the frozen layer is not especially thick driving forward
in these conditions risks forcing up sheets of ice, potentially damaging
to both boats and the banks. It also hampers efforts by the canal and
River trust to carry out routine repairs like here west of Newbury.
If the ice reaches a certain thickness then it does cause
us problems with moving boats about in it, obviously.
We can recreate a plough wave in front of us, of solid ice,
So it causes problems with moving boats and also because locks
are mostly Grade II listed structures, we have to use
authentic materials, we have to use lime mortar
and you can't lay lime mortar below certain temperatures.

Should've seen Hillary's face. She was stood there with Bill.
Because she's going to an event to celebrate
a job that she didn't get and the person closest to her, to reassure
her, to tell her it's going to be OK,
is a person who's already had that job.
Yeah. She must be thinking, "Where can I go?"
It's just pain, but it doesn't feel like pain,
it feels much more violent, dark and exciting.
