Crime and punishment

A footballer who celebrated a goal by making a gesture in support of a friend jailed for killing two children in a car crash has been prosecuted for a motoring offence, it was disclosed today. Ipswich midfielder David Norris, 28, was fined £400 yesterday after admitting driving while using a mobile phone.

Meanwhile, having pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving Lord Ahmed will soon be back on the roads, since the judge imposed a one-year driving ban .

And now for the really serious offender. A drug addict who broke into more than 100 commuters' cars at stations across London and the South-East was jailed for 20 months.
