A woman has denied causing the deaths of two toddlers whose pushchairs were hit in a crash involving two cars.

Oliwier Baczyk, one, and Zofia Tabaka, two, both died in hospital after the crash in Leicester on 6 August last year.

Sharmila Mistry, 41, of Dalby Avenue, Bushby, denied two counts of causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving.

A 61-year-old man who was arrested at the time has since died.

Ms Mistry was bailed after appearing at Leicester Magistrates' Court earlier and the case was committed to Leicester Crown Court for a hearing on 12 August.

The crash happened at the junction of Braunstone Gate and Narborough Road.

The two toddlers, who both lived in Leicester, were repatriated to Poland.
