A 59 year old coach driver has denied causing the deaths of two women in a crash in Cornwall two years ago.

Martin Chun, of Whitestone near Exeter, pleaded not guilty at Truro Crown Court to causing the deaths of 59-year-old Margaret Luxton and 68-year-old grandmother Carol Muldoon.

Chun also denied a second charge of causing serious injury by dangerous driving to four passengers in the same alleged incident in May 2014 at Morval near Looe.

The Carmel Coaches vehicle was taking around 50 elderly passengers on an Age Concern organised trip from Exmouth to Looe when the crash happened on the A387 road.

Chun has been bailed and his trial has been set for August this year.
