A Queensland father marking two years since his son, daughter-in-law and unborn grandchild died is calling for more action on youth crime.

The car was driven by a 17-year-old who can’t be named for legal reasons.

Their deaths shocked Queensland and prompted new laws but Matthew Field’s father, Russell, has slammed the lack of action and progress in tackling youth crime.

“In those two years – nothing appears to have happened,” he said.

He wants re-education camps and mandatory minimum sentences looked at for repeat offenders.

The father fears the time to make a difference is running out.

“We don’t want to have Matt, Kate and Miles’ death in vain,” he said.

“Something good has to come of this.”

The issue is set to dominate state Parliament when it resumes next month.
