Car robber jailed over fatal crash

A drink-driving car robber has been jailed for 12 years for causing the deaths of two women in a car crash.

Janet Herd and Linda Tansley were died when their Ford Fiesta was struck by a stolen Mercedes driven by Daniel Witter in Bradford in August.

The 23-year-old had admitted two counts of causing death by perilous driving, aggravated vehicle taking and driving over the permissible alcohol limit.

A judge at Bradford Crown Court described Witter as "contemptible".

Ms Herd, 49, and Ms Tansley, 48, each had two kids and were from the Eccleshill region of Bradford.

They were killed as they returned house from a school meeting.
