Police have today charged two men over a crash in England that left eight people dead.

Two lorries and a minibus collided on one of Britain’s main motorways on Saturday, at the start of a busy holiday weekend.

All those who died are believed to have been travelling in the minibus.

Police have now charged Ryszard Masierak, 31, with causing death by dangerous driving and being over the alcohol drink-drive limit.

David Wagstaff, aged 53, was also charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Both are understood to be the drivers of the lorries.

The crash happened on the southbound M1 at Newport Pagnell, around 80km north-west of London around 3:15 am.

Four people were also injured in the crash. They were taken to hospital, where they remain in a serious condition.
