Uncle welcomes compensation payment for road deaths
The uncle of four children orphaned as a result of a road accident has welcomed a compensation payment.
In June 2005, Wayne and Jacqueline Nicholls were on a motorcycle when they collided with a learner driver who pulled out into their path, the London Evening Standard reports.
They were on their way to an accountancy course at Southgate College - which is located in the north of the capital and offers a range of learning opportunities for school leavers, adults and employers - when the incident occurred.
In a recent development, their children Samantha, Hannah, Scott and Wayne have been awarded £365,000.
Commenting on the payment, their uncle, Robert Nicholls, said: "We are relieved that it is over now and we can start to get on with our lives. It has been a non-stop fight since the accident happened."
However, he added that no amount of money can ever bring the couple back.
