Grieving mother speaks out

The grieving mother of a 14 year-old Onchan girl killed in a car crash says the man responsible for her death has displayed a complete 'lack of remorse'.

Eighteen year-old Craig Bridgewater from Peel was this week jailed for three years for causing the death, by dangerous driving, of Lucia Porter.

She was one of eight teenagers in a Ford Fiesta, driven by Bridgewater, when it crashed on the Switchback Road near Peel on March the eighth this year.

Lucia’s mother, Julie, says she takes no pleasure from Bridgewater being in prison, but feels aggrieved at his attitude and seemingly blasé approach after a photo of him, relaxing with his friends an hour before the sentencing, was posted on social media.
