Campaign in memory of Brierley woman goes to Parliament

A Barnsley man - calling for tougher death by dangerous driving sentences - could see his campaign move a step closer to becoming a reality.

Johnny Wood's sister, Jacqueline Wileman, was walking in Brierley last September when a stolen lorry hit and killed her. Four men were jailed following a trial.

Johnny is now fighting for the maximum jail time of 14 years to be changed, so judges can give out harsher sentences.

Barnsley East MP Stephanie Peacock's due to bring the topic up in Parliament.
