Bassetlaw MP, John Mann, has slammed the justice system after it emerged that a reckless driver who killed a father-to-be could be let out on day release - less than 12 months after he was jailed for five years.

Farm worker Joseph Weston, 22, was jailed last July after Nottingham Crown Court was told in detail how he was seen speeding up the A60 at Cuckney Hill ‘like lightning.’

Accident investigators said Weston, of Longdale Lane, Ravenshead, was doing 90mph when he lost control of his high-powered Ford Fiesta on a left-hand bend before smashing head-on into Luke Winter, of Nether Langwith, on 15th August 2012.
