The 19-year-old, the front-seat passenger in a silver Ford Fiesta, died after it careered off the road and crashed into a planter and road sign.

Robert John Atkinson, 20, of Oswestry Place in Cramlington, and Christopher Foreman, 21, of Longhirst, Killingworth, were both due to appear at North Tyneside Magistrates’ Court in North Shields today.
