co­caine in Feb­ru­ary. Mum Louise, 28, was with them and saw the crash near their home in Coventry.

Reece read out a state­ment on her be­half as Brown was jailed for nine years at War­wick crown court last month. It said: “My fam­ily is bro­ken, my heart is bro­ken and time will never heal this.”

He and Louise said: “We are liv­ing a life sen­tence knowing we will never see our boys grown up.”

Reece’s death was not be­ing treated as sus­pi­cious, po­lice said. Se­rial crook Brown, who had never passed his test, was driv­ing at 60mph in a 30mph zone just six days af­ter be­ing re­leased from jail.

He sped off af­ter the crash but the car broke down. Pas­sen­ger Gwen­do­line Har­ri­son, 41, swung a bag of beer cans at on­look­ers who tried to re­strain them. Po­lice found them hid­ing be­hind a shed.

The At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s of­fice is cur­rently con­sid­er­ing whether Brown’s sen­tence was too le­nient.
