A man has pleaded guilty to causing a university student's death when he crashed into a bus stop near Bearwood.

Rebecca McManus, 21, was waiting to travel into Birmingham for a hen party when Sukvinder Mannan's Mitsubishi left the road on 31 May, police said.

Another person, also 21, was seriously injured in the crash.

Mannan, 33, of Roundhills Road, Halesowen, admitted causing death and serious injury by dangerous driving, plus failing to provide a blood sample.

He will return to Wolverhampton Crown Court at a later date for sentencing.

Inderjit Singh, of Cranbourne Avenue, Wolverhampton, is also charged with causing death by dangerous driving and causing serious injury through dangerous driving.

He has yet to enter a plea and is due at the court on 18 May.

West Midlands Police said Ms McManus, from Oldbury, had been studying English literature and creative writing at the University of East Anglia.

She was hit on Hagley Road and died at the scene.
