This is the lorry driver charged with causing death by dangerous driving of a mother and her two young children in an horrific road crash.

Stacey Gitsham, along with her two-year-old son Joshua and 11-week-old baby Georgia, died in a five-vehicle pile-up on the A1 near St Neots on December 8.

Lorry driver James Wingfield is due to appear at Peterborough Crown Court tomorrow (Thursday) to face three charges of causing death by dangerous driving and one count of careless driving.

The 36-year-old, of Colchester Street, Coventry, attended a hearing at Huntingdon Magistrates' Court last Thursday, when he spoke only to confirm his personal details. No pleas were entered.

Prosecutor Craig McDougall said the three victims died after their BMW was in collision with an articulated lorry. The force of the impact pushed the car into another vehicle in front, causing a chain reaction.

Magistrates sent the case to crown court, remanding Mr Wingfield on unconditional bail.
