A WIMBOLDSLEY teenager who caused the death of two women in Middlewich by dangerous driving has been imprisoned.

Michael David Gilligan, 19, of Nantwich Road, was sentenced to six years at Cheshter Crown Court this morning, Wednesday, February 19.

Barbara Lea, 79 and Christine Coates, 75, both from Sandbach, were killed when the black Vauxhall Astra Gilligan was driving, without insurance, crashed into their red Honda Jazz on the A533 at 10.45pm on June 18 2013.

The court heard that Gilligan was driving on the wrong side of the road at 54 mph when he crashed into their vehicle.
