Best friend framed in fatal St Agnes hit and run

A man who was framed by his best friend for causing two deaths has said he cannot understand why he did it.

Rupert Thompson was nowhere near a fatal crash but was arrested the next day and kept on bail for five months.

His best friend Ryan Morrish was jailed for six years for causing the deaths of Calvin Trevena and Ann Varran and for perverting the course of justice.

After the crash in St Agnes, Cornwall, Morrish told police he thought Mr Thompson had taken his car as a joke.
