A coach driver is due to stand trial next month accused of causing a man's death by dangerous driving in a crash on the M5.

Daniel Parr, 24, of Llanelly Hill, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire pleaded not guilty at Gloucester Crown Court.

It is alleged Mr Parr was driving a Cardiff to Leeds Megabus dangerously on the northbound M5, near Tewkesbury when the crash happened on 12 December 2010.

He is accused of causing the death of Raymond Vaughan by dangerous driving.

The incident involved a coach, an articulated lorry and two cars, said Gloucestershire Police at the time.

Mr Vaughan, 30, a father-of-two from Birmingham, was driving one of the cars.

Judge Jamie Tabor QC listed the trial for five days from 25 June.
