Whatever the causes of this tragedy, nothing will bring back those victims. Should the boy have been locked up for longer than four-and-a-half years? It is easy to have sympathy with the families who think that sentence doesn’t even begin to measure their loss.

We should also remember the emergency services who had to deal with this crash site. We are grateful for their professionalism.
