Three men have been remanded in custody after appearing in court charged over the deaths of a pregnant woman and her baby in a car crash.

Deborah Peaty, 26, died when the Vauxhall Corsa she was driving was involved in a collision on the A5 near Potterspury, Northamptonshire.

Ratnam Yogan, 28, was accused of two counts of causing death by dangerous driving following the accident in which Miss Peaty and her child, who was subsequently delivered, died.

Mr Yogan was also charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice, along with co-defendants Ramasamy Nallaikkanthan, also 28, and Pushparajah Sinnappayal, 25.

Bail applications for all three men, from Manor Park, London, were refused after they were remanded in custody by magistrates in Northampton on Saturday.

They are to appear at the town's crown court for a preliminary hearing on 31 October.

Miss Peaty, from Hillary Close, Daventry, was 30 weeks pregnant when she died after the multi-car crash.

The baby, a little girl who also died in the crash, was delivered and named Charlotte Louise Peaty by her family.
