Teenagers killed in accident near Michaelwood Services

Two teenagers from Gloucestershire were killed when the car they were travelling in left the road and ended up in a ditch.

Emergency services were called to Damery Lane, near Michaelwood Services, late on Tuesday following reports of the accident.

The 18-year-old driver from North Nibley and his passenger, a 17-year-old boy from Dursley, died at the scene.
