A 16-year-old boy is being questioned by police after being arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

what do you think?
R.i.p.little one.the teenager has got to live with this for the rest of his life, hope it teaches others not to joy ride.
Poor little lad.god bless, Where were the teenagers parents
Probably all watching Diane its a renowned travellers site for trouble
Is it was thinking it was a holiday home site,qill they play the race card and cry victimization
Yep probably will Diane
If he is proved guilty lets hope he will never legally be allowed behind the wheel if s vehicle for the rest of his life
What does never allowing him to drive legally achieve people like this young lad don't care if they have a licence or not. Its the same when they ban a 13 yr old Joyrider( not a good title as theres no joy) gets banned from diving for 5 yrs????? He shouldn't be driving now so no ban is going to stop them!!! "Shall we steal a car?? " no I can't I'm banned?????
