A 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl who were travelling in a Ford Fiesta were both airlifted to hospital after the crash on the B4035 Campden Road near Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire, at about 4.05pm.

They have both since died, Warwickshire Police said on Saturday, and their next of kin have been informed.

The two other passengers in the Fiesta were also rushed to hospital: a 16-year-old old boy who remains in a critical condition, and a 17-year-old boy who is now in a stable condition following surgery.

The crash also involved a Fiat 500, which was driven by a woman with two children, all of whom sustained serious injuries but are in a stable condition in hospital.
