Families of teens killed by drink-driver call for tougher sentences

Staff writer

A drink-driver who struck and killed three teenagers on their way to a birthday party has been sentenced to 13 years in jail – but the families of the boys killed believe he should be given life imprisonment.

Jaynesh Chudasama, 28, plunged into Harry Rice, George Wilkinson and Josh McGuinness, aged 17, 16 and 16 as they made their way to a friend's 16th birthday party in Hayes, West London. The court heard that Chudasama was more than two and a half times over the legal drink-driving limit and was doing 71mph on a 60mph road.
