The jury in the case of a 21-year-old accused of running over and killing an elderly couple while using her mobile phone at the wheel, has retired to consider its verdict.

Denis and Joyce Drew, both 86, were hit while returning home from a friend's house in Ponthir, near Caerleon, two years ago.

Taylor McDonnell denies two death by dangerous driving charges at Newport Crown Court.

She claims her phone was on speaker.

The trial continues.
