A man has appeared in court charged with causing the deaths of two sisters by dangerous driving.

Shelly Wu, six, and Lily, seven, died when they were hit while crossing Grove Lane, Handsworth, on 21 June.

Michael Junior, 35, is also accused of causing serious injury to their mother Zhulan, 39, and two other children by driving dangerously.

Mr Junior, of Copthall Road, Handsworth, did not indicate a plea at Birmingham Magistrates' Court.
