A man has appeared in court charged in connection with a tipper truck crash that killed four people in Bath.

Peter Wood, 55, is accused of unlawfully killing Mitzi Steady, four, from Bath, Robert Parker, 59, from Cwmbran, Phil Allen, 52, and Stephen Vaughan, 34, both from Swansea.

They were all killed in the crash on Lansdown Lane on 9 February last year.

Mr Wood, of Brooklands, Chippenham, did not enter a plea to the charge at Bristol Crown Court.

Philip Potter, 19, and Matthew Gordon, 29, have previously appeared in court also charged in connection with the incident.

Judge Michael Longman adjourned the case until 1 July when Mr Wood will appear alongside Mr Potter and Mr Gordon for a pre-trial hearing.
