A man has denied the manslaughter of two girls who were struck by a car.

Jasmine Allsop, 14, and Olivia Lewry, 16, were hit by a Honda Civic in the early hours of 3 November while walking along Ann's Hill Road in Gosport, Hampshire.

Samuel Etherington, an unemployed sports coach from the town, pleaded not guilty to the girls' manslaughter at Winchester Crown Court.

The 20-year-old was remanded in custody and will reappear in court next month.

Jasmine died at the scene while Olivia died at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth.
