In China, the son of a top government official is on trial after trying to escape the scene of a hit-and-run accident that killed one woman.

It is alleged the 22-year old tried to use his father's status by yelling out his name as he fled the scene, thinking he would escape with immunity.

The words 'My father is Li Gang' have now taken on new meaning in China, with a string of pop-culture parodies using it to criticise corruption in the country.
