Four men have been charged following a hit-and-run in which two girls died in Oldham on New Years Eve.

Gabor Hegedus, 38, has been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, as well as conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, driving without a licence, failing to stop after a collision and failing to report the collision.

A further three men; David Orsos, 18, Janos Kalanyos, 50, and Zoltan Peto, 49, all from Oldham, have also been charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

The charges relate to the deaths of Helen Kotlarova, 12, and Zaneta Krokova, 11, who were struck by a car on Ashton Road as they held hands to cross the street after coming out of a shop near their homes on December 31.

All four men have been remanded in custody and are due to appear at Tameside Magistrates' Court today.
