George Brown admits causing deaths of teenagers

A Londonderry gas fitter has pleaded guilty to causing the deaths of two teenagers by carbon monoxide poisoning.

George Brown, from Ballygawley Road, Aghadowey, had initially pleaded not guilty to the charge of manslaughter.

Neil McFerran and Aaron Davidson were overcome by the gas at a holiday apartment in Castlerock, County Londonderry, in 2010.

David Maxwell reports.
