A man has been imprisoned for his role in the fatal collision in Somerset that took the lives of two siblings, reaching speeds of 100mph.

A man has been sentenced to 10 years in jail after causing the death of two sisters in a high-speed crash on a Somerset bypass. Thomas Lenthall, 40, was driving an Audi RS 6 when he collided head-on with Maddie’s VW Polo on the A361 Frome bypass. The sisters, aged 21 and 17, had gone out to buy soft drinks at the time of the accident. Lenthall, who was already under investigation for another accident and found to be under the influence of cannabis, pleaded guilty to causing the sisters’ deaths by dangerous driving. He will serve at least two-thirds of his sentence in jail.
