Violet Youens: Man charged over four-year-old's death

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.

Police are trying to trace another man, aged 23, who was thought to be in the car and is believed to to have left the country shortly after the crash.

Violet's grandmother, Angela French, who was also hit by the car when it mounted a pavement in Prescot Road on Saturday, remains in a serious but stable condition.


A third man, aged 23 and from Prescot, arrested on suspicion of being a passenger in a stolen vehicle, was released pending further inquiries, Merseyside Police said.
