Joyce became the youngest person to be convicted of causing death by dangerous driving today. The judge took the unusual step of naming Joyce "in the overwhelming public interest".

Joyce was also found guilty today of a robbery committed on 27 May 2003 in the Barking area. There was no separate penalty.
