Mary McCann has been arrested after failing to appear in court over charges of causing the deaths of her 10-year-old son and daughter aged four.

The 35-year-old handed herself in to a police station after a nationwide police hunt.

She failed to appear Aylesbury Crown Court last Friday to answer two charges of causing death by dangerous driving and the judge issued a warrant for her arrest.
