A second man has been arrested over a crash which caused the deaths of two men from Bedford when a car failed to stop for police in Hertfordshire.

A 21-year-old from Bedford has been held on suspicion of aggravated vehicle taking and bailed until 8 February.

Michael Cush, 26, of Bedford has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving and aggravated vehicle taking.

He has been remanded in custody and will appear before St Albans Crown Court on 13 November.

An Audi A3 was ordered to stop for police on the Leisure Park in Stevenage early on Friday 2 November.

The driver failed to obey and during a pursuit the car hit a lamppost on Mardley Hill in Woolmer Green.

Karl Spencer, 25, died at the scene and Cameron Nimmo, 20, died later at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge.

The crash is being investigated by officers from Essex and has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
