Luke McCormick will appear in court on 8 September

Plymouth Argyle have cancelled the contract of goalkeeper Luke McCormick by mutual consent.

The 24-year-old is on bail after being charged with causing death by dangerous driving and driving with excess alcohol in his blood.

The charges relate to a car accident on the M6 in June in which two young boys were killed.

McCormick was suspended by the Championship club earlier this month ahead of their pre-season training.

A statement on the club's website read: "Plymouth Argyle have today cancelled the contract of goalkeeper Luke McCormick by mutual consent.

"The club will be making no further comment on the matter."

McCormick will next appear in court on 8 September.

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.
