JURORS have retired to consider their verdict in the case of a man accused of causing the deaths of two people in a horrific ambulance crash in the New Forest.

Richard Husband, of New Forest Drive, Brockenhurst, had been driving his Seat Alhambra along the A337 Brockenhurst to Lyndhurst road in the same direction as the ambulance before pulling out to overtake the car in front.

Prosecutors allege that the defendant failed to adequately check his mirrors before attempting to overtake.

Patient Francis Ironside, 88, and paramedic Gillian Randall, 42, who was driving the vehicle, were both killed in the collision. Mr Ironside’s son David, 64, and paramedic Richard Riley, 32, were badly injured in the the collision on April 26 last year.

Husband, 26, denies two counts of causing death by careless driving.
