Chloe, a passenger in the back seat, suffered devastating injuries when the Hampson Mercedes C220 crashed into a tree near the Moxhull Hall Hotel on Holly Lane in Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield, shortly after midnight.

She died of her injuries six days later in the hospital. Chloe was unbuckled at the time of the collision.

Her mother Emma was also seriously injured but has since recovered.

Today Hampson was sentenced to seven years and eleven months in prison at Coventry Crown Court of Circus Avenue in Chelmsley Wood after pleading guilty to causing death while under the influence of careless driving.

The court overheard him drinking all day at the wedding and never supposed to be behind the wheel of a car. The court was told that hospital staff could smell the driver when he was taking care of him.

It was believed that Hampson is roughly twice the limit on alcohol consumption. However, the alcohol content could not be accurately calculated as he also refused to provide a blood sample for analysis.

Prosecutor Sophie Murray said the accident was due to the defendant not driving according to the road conditions.

She said his misjudgment was due to his state of drunkenness.

Chloe’s grandmother, Yana, filed a statement with the court saying she was “left with a broken heart that can never be mended”.

Her death devastated Chloes’ many family members and friends.
