A man has been charged by police after three people were fatally injured in a crash on the M26 in Kent in April.

Juraj Orsula, 45, from Slovakia, is accused of causing death by dangerous driving and three counts of causing injury by dangerous driving.

A 54-year-old French man died several days after the crash. His daughters aged 22, and 16 died at the scene.

Mr Orsula was bailed and is due to appear at Sevenoaks Magistrates' Court on 5 December.

The five-vehicle crash happened on the London-bound carriageway of the M26, near Kemsing on 16 April.

It involved two lorries, a van, a Nissan car and a Mini.

Eight people were injured, including three who were seriously hurt, Kent Police said.
