A Driffield man is facing a prison sentence for causing a horrific crash which killed two men.

Jack Beston, of Duncombe Drive in Driffield, pleaded guilty to two counts of dangerous driving when he appeared at Hull Crown Court on Monday.

Beston was driving a caravan transporter westbound on the M62 near Goole on April 3 2018 when it crashed through the central reservation and collided with a black Lexus car travelling eastbound.

Nigel Ely, 41, and John-Paul Cassidy, 37, were travelling in the Lexus car.

The M62 was closed for more than 18 hours following the crash.

Mr Ely died at the scene and Mr Cassidy passed away in hospital 10 days later.

Mr Cassidy was engaged to be married and left behind two brothers, parents, and a large network of friends.

His family described him at the time as "loyal, generous, charismatic and above all fun loving".

They said he would be sorely missed.

Mr Eley was a married father and a "dedicated" under-9s football coach in Urmston, Greater Manchester. He was described as a "genuinely great guy".

Beston was charged two and a half years after the crash in September this year, alongside Michael Holgate, of Munstead Way, Brough, who was charged with two counts of manslaughter through gross negligence, two counts of causing death whilst uninsured and one offence under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
