A man who died when a car crashed into a forest and overturned in Essex has been identified as an 18-year-old from east London.

Myles Binns, from Chingford, died when a Vauxhall Astra left Earls Path, Loughton, and crashed on Thursday night.

Two men, aged 19 and 20 and also from east London, were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

They have been released on bail pending further inquiries.

A 19-year-old man from Chingford was taken to Whipps Cross Hospital following the incident.

In a separate crash in Essex, the driver of a van died in a crash with a broken-down lorry on the A120 Braintree-bound, close to Great Dunmow, on Friday evening.

The 33-year-old man from Great Dunmow is believed to have died at the scene.

No-one else was injured and no arrests have been made, police said.

The A120 was closed until the early hours of Saturday.
