A heartbroken County Tyrone family is campaigning for the maximum sentence for death by dangerous driving to be imposed here following the death of their son in 2014. Enda Dolan was just 18 years old when he was knocked down and killed by a drunk driver on the Malone Road close to his Queen's University accommodation. The driver who killed him got a nine year sentence - but only four and a half of that will be served in prison. His father Peter and mother Niamh are now urging the Department of Justice to finish a review of sentencing started before the Assembly collapsed. Our reporter, Nicola Weir, went to visit the family in Omagh and began by asking Peter about his memories of Enda.
