The widow of a Long Preston man killed by a drink-driver says she will never give up her fight for justice.

Lorraine Allaway's husband, Bob, was riding his motorbike on the A65 near Settle on 3 October 2015 when he collided with a car which was on the wrong side of the road.

The driver of the car was found to be two-and-a-half times the legal limit.

Since Bob's death, Lorraine has tirelessly campaigned for drivers who kill to be given tougher sentences.

However, she feels "let down" because she feels tougher sentences are yet to be handed out.

Lorraine says she wants a zero tolerance approach to alcohol and driving:
