POLICE have charged a man with causing death by dangerous driving after a car smash which killed three women.

A man aged 23 from Wingate, who was driving a third car, has now been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

He has been bailed and is due to appear before magistrates in Peterlee on April 23.
