DEBRA Carne's mother Heather Knight, said last nightshe hoped her daughter would haunt the minds of those responsible for the death.

Speaking exclusively to the EADT she said she was extremely disappointed with Nicole Hollinshead's sentence.

She said: "She was the one I had a problem with because she started it. I can't believe she only got five years.

"I do think Steven Wood was full of remorse, and I think of all of them he was sorry for what he did and how he got caught up in all this mess.

"I can understand that - I am not on his side - but you can look at him and feel sorry that he had got caught up in it - he was an ok sort of person."

She said for the others to express remorse, through their barristers yesterday was, "too little, too late".
