Jasmine, 14, who lived yards from where the crash happened near the Ann’s Hill Road junction with Brougham Street at about 4.15am on November 3, died at the scene.

Best friend Olivia, 16, was taken to hospital where she later died.

Unemployed sports coach Etherington, of Stoners Close, Gosport, who was unhurt, had denied two counts of manslaughter.

However he admitted two counts of causing death by dangerous driving which was accepted by the Crown Prosecution Service at Winchester Crown Court.
