And the distraught father of the two-year-old was furious when the driver was handed 120 hours of community service, with 60 days in custody if the work is not completed, launching a chair in her direction before being escorted from the Limburg, Netherlands, court by security.

Local media reports suggest the situation was worsened by the apparent absence of remorse shown by the motorist, who they say did not apologise.

The sentence has been widely criticised by those who have watched the video on social media, with one user calling it ‘bullsh***’ and another saying that ‘taking the life of three people NEEDS punishment’.
