A man has been charged with six offences after an elderly couple died following a collision last September.

George Victor Leonard Breakwell, 95, known as Len, and his wife Ellen, 89, both died several days after the crash in Bericote Lane, in Leamington Spa.

Their Ford Focus was in collision with a BMW on 5 September.

Some of the charges Lee McGuigan, from Kenilworth, faces include two counts of causing death whilst under the influence of drink.

He is also accused of two counts of causing death by careless driving and two counts of causing death whilst driving an uninsured vehicle.

He is due to appear before magistrates in Leamington on 29 June.

Mrs Breakwell, a passenger in the Focus, died on 7 September, and her husband died five days later.

The couple lived in Yardley, Birmingham.
