A van driver has been found guilty of causing the deaths of three passengers in a "horrendous and traumatic" crash on the M4 in Wiltshire.

James Stark, 37, Steven Sheldon, 35, and Martin Williams, 36, all from south Wales, died when the van crashed into a lorry near Chippenham in June 2014.

Stephen Jenkins, 39, of Park View Terrace, Abercwmboi, was convicted at Swindon Crown Court of three counts of causing death by dangerous driving.

He will be sentenced on 6 June.

Following the verdicts on Wednesday, Sgt Barrie Card of Wiltshire Police said: "This has been a very detailed investigation from what started as an horrendous and traumatic scene, and these convictions would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication shown by all of those involved with this case."
