LETTERS: Accidents involving lorry drivers

Sir: In your leading article concerning the death of Jill Phipps, you say that the lorry driver "deserves sympathy". I, along with many thousands of others, can feel no sympathy for someone who is making profit out of the vile trade of exporting live animals. Saying that the driver had no intention of killing any protesters has the same moral position as saying a drunk driver had no intention of killing a pedestrian.

All sympathy must go to the family and friends Ms Phipps has left behind and to the innocent creatures she spent her life trying to save.

Yours, M. Thomas Slough, Berkshire 3 February
