DRINK-drive killer Scott Nicholls told a psychiatrist that he wished he had died in the crash instead of his two victims.

Martyn Levett, representing Nicholls, said as part of his mitigation that his defendant had expressed extreme remorse to a psychiatrist.

The court heard how he had told the psychiatrist: “I would like to say I'm sorry for the pain I have caused. I know there's nothing I can do to bring their daughters back.

“I can't believe I was so stupid to have taken my brother's car and because of that such a tragedy has happened.
