A man is to appear in court charged in connection with the deaths of two teenagers who were killed in a road crash in Ceredigion last year.

Anwen Busby, 16, and Jai Burkes, 18, died when the car they were in rolled down an embankment and landed in Llywernog lake near Aberystwyth.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the 22-year-old driver had been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

He is due to appear at Aberystwyth Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Two other 16-year-old girls who were injured in the crash were cut free from the wreckage of the car, which ended up in 4ft (1.2m) of water.

The crash happened on the A44 between Aberystwyth and Ponterwyd early on 31 August last year.
