Plymouth Argyle keeper Luke McCormick has been suspended by the Championship side as he awaits trial following a fatal motorway accident in June.

McCormick has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving following a motorway accident in which two young boys were killed.

The 24-year-old is also charged with driving with excess alcohol and will next appear in court on 8 September.

McCormick will now not take any part in the club's pre-season training.

"We have advised Luke McCormick that, in light of current circumstances, he has been suspended by the club and so will not be required to attend pre-season training," said a club statement.

Brothers Arron and Ben Peak, aged 10 and eight, from Manchester, were killed in a collision on the M6.

The brothers and their father Philip, 37, were in a Toyota Previa with friends.

Their car was involved in a collision on the southbound carriageway of the motorway in Staffordshire between junctions 15 and 16, near Keele services.
