A driver whose car allegedly mounted a pavement in Kent killing two people has been remanded in custody over charges of causing death by dangerous driving.

Stefan Stanko, 24, of West Street, Gravesend, did not enter pleas when he appeared at Ashford Magistrates' Court.

Denise Head, 49, was pronounced dead at the scene on Sunday while Brian Moon, 67, died of his injuries later.

A 12-year-old girl was also critically hurt in the incident, which happened in Beaver Road, Ashford.

Failure to stop

Two women received less serious injuries in the incident, which happened at about 0015 BST.

Mr Stanko faces two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and one each of dangerous driving, failure to stop after a collision and driving with excess alcohol.

In court, he spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address with the aid of an interpreter.

He is due to appear at Maidstone Crown Court on 12 October for a preliminary hearing.

Floral tributes have been left at the scene of the crash.
