Newport Mum's Despair After Teen's Death

The mother of Newport crash victim Xana Doyle tells HEART she'll never move on...

Xana was just 19 when she died in a car crash on Usk Way in January.

Two men have now been jailed for their roles in her death, the driver was twice over the limit on drink and drugs.

Xana's mother Emma O'Donoghue tells HEART she'll never be able to move on from this nightmare.

"I don't know if I will be able to forgive their actions and what they've done.

If at the time they had said it's a terrible accident we are so sorry this is what happened...

...then I would of felt sorry for them for being in the situation.

They have put us through hell and that hell is going to continue and my children have to live with this...I have to live with this.

I can't even describe how this has changed my life we are all empty shells walking around.

You're just trying to get on with the normal things in life to be normal and you just can't be... will it ever be the same again.

 You can't just move on from losing a child it is with you everyday...when you wake up...

 ...when you make a cup of tea...when you go to sleep it's there you don't move on."
