A man has been charged in connection with the death of two women after a car plunged into a ditch off of the Ramsey Forty Foot last week.

Ionut Cosmin Curut, 21, of Sutton Road in Spalding, Lincolnshire, was driving a silver Mazda 6 at about 7.15am on Friday (October 13) when it left Puddock Road and went into a water-filled ditch.

Two women, who were travelling in the rear of the car, died at the scene.

Cosmin and another man, who was travelling in the front of the car, managed to get out and were taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital, in Huntingdon, with minor injuries.

On Saturday (October 14) Cosmin appeared at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court charged with two counts of death by careless driving.

He has been remanded in custody to appear at Peterborough Crown Court on November 10.
