A man has been charged in connection with a crash in which a four-year-old girl was hit and killed by a car.

Violet Grace Youens died after being struck in St Helens, Merseyside.

Dean Brennan, 27, from Prescot, is due before Liverpool magistrates accused of assisting an offender, motor theft and being a passenger in a stolen car.
