OUTSIDE court after the sentence on Wednesday, Tom's father, Chris, said: "It is despicable that Simpson has received such a short sentence and been cleared of driving without due care. This is no example for the lads of how justice works. We are pursuing a civil case and we may take this to the European Court.
"We just feel cheated. The only person who knows if Simpson was on the phone at the time of the accident is him. It is a total farce."
Mr Jones, who works at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, said Tom's death had had a devastating effect on his sister, Rosie, 16, and brother, Nathan, 21.
"It has affected Rosie's school career and Nathan's time at university and we haven't been able to work."

"We would like to thank people for the support they have given us," she added.
