After the crash, Elliott Bower told arresting officers: “You can remand me if you like, I’ll get out and I’ll do bang the same thing again and you lot will have to chase me.”
Judge Richardson told the defendants: “Each one of you thinks of himself as a local villain who enjoys committing crime.
“Two of you, the Bower brothers, both enjoy taunting the police.
“In truth, you are nothing more than a somewhat miserably inadequate group of deeply malevolent local criminals. You have visited a catastrophe of the highest magnitude on two families.”
In a victim impact statement read to the court Mrs Kroscenova said: “I lost my baby boy, who gave me strength and appetite for life every day. I miss his smile, I miss his voice, I never heard him calling me mummy, the only word he said was daddy.”
