A man from Exeter who was found guilty of killing his date in a speedboat crash is appealing his conviction, despite being on the run.

Jack Shepherd, who is 30 and used to live in Bristol, has been in hiding since a jury found him guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence.
 
24-year-old Charlotte Brown died in December 2015 after she was thrown from his speedboat into the River Thames.
 
Shepherd didn't turn up to his trial back in July and was sentenced to six years in prison in his absence.
 
Charlotte's family have called for him to hand himself in.
