Drivers who accidentally cause death by dangerous driving by changing the radio station or using a mobile phone at the time of the crash could avoid prosecution according to one of the country's top prosecutors.

Keir Starmer QC, the Director of Public Prosecutions, has told prosecutors to consider the "greater emotional impact" felt by a motorist who kills a relative or close personal friend.
