The families of two teenagers killed in a Romford crash have rejected a judge’s opinion the driver who caused their deaths has shown remorse.
Speaking after Joseph Andrews, of Norbury Gardens, Chadwell Heath, was jailed at Basildon Crown Court yesterday, Harry and Gregg’s families pointed to Twitter updates the previous week in which Andrews talked of starting a family and enjoying a festival.
Gregg’s mother Mandy, of Basildon, said: “He obviously didn’t expect to get very long.
“He’s just enjoying his life and displaying it to the public. That’s not very remorseful.
“You’d think he would keep his head down.

“I’m disgusted. We knew we wouldn’t be happy with any outcome, but my son’s life is worth more than two years.”
Gregg, who won Chelmsford Motor Club’s annual autotest championship in 2010, had hoped to get a place on a motorsport team.
