A man has pleaded guilty to two counts of causing death by dangerous driving after two friends died when his car hit a tree and flipped onto its roof.

Marc Martin, 22, and Matt Preece, 21, died when the BMW crashed in High Beeches Lane, Handcross, West Sussex, in December 2014.

The driver Kyle Witney, 21, of Lindfield, admitted the charges at Lewes Crown Court.

He is due to be sentenced at the same court on 15 January 2016.

Mr Martin, from Haywards Heath, and Mr Preece, of Lindfield, were both sitting in the back of the BMW.

A 16-year-old girl was also injured.
