THE heartbroken daughter of a Sheffield woman killed by two racing motorists today spoke of her grief - and the terrible moment she was told her mother was dead.

Joanne Capille, from Hillsborough, was settling down to a night in with her husband when a policeman knocked on their door.

He broke the news that June Bryce-Stephen had been killed instantly when a speeding car being raced against another driver smashed into her Nissan Micra.

“The accident had been completely avoidable,” said Joanne. “My mum’s life had been wasted thanks to their complete disregard for human life.”

Adam Cox and Simon Chevens are now in jail for causing death by dangerous driving, and have been banned from the roads for a decade.

Joanne, aged 39, now plans to work alongside road safety campaigners to highlight the dangers of wreckless driving.
