Iqbal Singh an illegal immigrant who killed father-of-four in motorway crash is jailed for just two years

A widow has reacted with fury after an illegal immigrant who killed her husband in a motorway crash was jailed for just two years.

Van driver Iqbal Singh, who was on the run from the UK Border Agency, was driving without a licence when he crashed into Malcolm Anderson's car after falling asleep at the wheel.

The 54-year-old father-of-four suffered a heart attack and died at the scene after his car hit a concrete post on the M6 near Coventry.

Singh, 39, then gave police a false name and address to avoid being caught by immigration officers.

Mr Anderson's widow Deborah hit out after the Indian illegal immigrant was jailed at Warwick Crown Court.
