 David (68) and Dorothy Metcalf (65)

The family of a couple killed by an illegal immigrant drink-driver have blamed Britain’s shambolic border controls.

Failed asylum seeker Eduard Mereohra, 26, was kicked out of the country in 2009 but slipped back in just months later.

On New Year’s Day, still drunk from a party the night before, he ploughed into a car carrying grandparents David and Dorothy Metcalf, killing them both and tearing a loving family apart.

Yesterday, after he was jailed for nine years, the couple’s family said they would still be alive today if the immigration system had not let them down.

They demanded an official investigation into how the Moldovan national was able to make a mockery of our border controls.

The court was told that Mereohra had even obtained a work permit and national insurance number under his real name, but last night this was disputed by the Home Office and the Department for Work and Pensions.

Victoria Agoglia (15)

The stories that spewed out of Liverpool Crown Court last week defied belief.

One 15-year-old meant to be receiving round the clock “solo” care at her Rochdale home went missing 19 times in three months, for up to two weeks at a time.

But instead of launching a search for her, “care” staff sent texts asking her when she’d be back. The people paid to look after this vulnerable child had no idea she was being groomed for sex by a vile gang who abused her up to 25 times in a night.

Another victim, Victoria Agoglia, died of a heroin overdose at 15. Is it any surprise this poor child, made to feel worthless by her abusers, gave up on life?

Even in death, Victoria was failed again by our justice system, which handed down a pathetic three-and-a-half-year prison sentence to the animal, Mohammed Yaqoob, who supplied the heroin that killed her.

Alan Smith (63)

A father out celebrating his daughter's birthday was brutally knifed to death in front of his horrified family just because he asked if a crying child was alright, a court was told yesterday.

Alan Smith, 63, was stabbed at least five times as he sat with his partner, daughter and son-in-law in a cafe in east London.

His alleged killer, Matthew Quesada, became enraged when Mr Smith approached him in the BB Cafe to ask if his young daughter, who was crying, was okay, the jury heard.

Quesada responded 'What's it to you? What's it got to f****** do with you?' before storming out of the cafe.

'Humiliated and angered' by what happened and 'bent on exacting revenge' Quesada, then aged 25, ran to his girlfriend's home to drop off the girl and grab a weapon.

With a knife concealed up his sleeve,He then raced after the family as they entered a second diner - the Roma cafe - where they had gone to eat to avoid any further trouble.

It was there that Quesada allegedly launched a 'frenzied and wordless' attack, stabbing Mr Smith in the head and body.

As Estelle Jenkins tried to get between her father and his attacker, Mr Smith struggled up from the bolted down table before falling to the floor where he kicked out in a vain attempt to stop the onslaught, the court heard.
