An unemployed sports coach has been remanded in custody charged with the manslaughter of two teenage girls who died after they were hit by a car in Hampshire.

Samuel Etherington, from Stoners Close, Gosport, made a five-minute appearance at Winchester Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.

The 20-year-old, dressed in a blue sports shirt and blue jumper, spoke only to confirm his name.

Etherington is charged with the manslaughter of Jasmine Allsop, 14, and Olivia Lewry, 16.

Police were called to Ann's Hill Road in Gosport at 4.15am on Sunday following reports that a green Honda Civic had hit two girls.

Jasmine died at the scene, while Olivia died later after being taken to hospital.

Judge Guy Boney QC adjourned the case for a plea and case management hearing on January 3.

The defendant did not enter a plea and there was no application for bail.
