    A professional footballer arrested over a motorway crash which claimed the lives of two young children has been named.
    Goalkeeper Luke McCormick is being held on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, sources say.

    Luke McCormickThe 25-year-old, who plays for Championship side Plymouth Argyle, had been driving a black Range Rover and was not hurt.

    Police say the boys, aged eight and 10, had been travelling in a silver Toyota Previa people carrier with two other children and two men.

    Argyle, in a statement, said: "The club is aware of an incident involving one of our players that occurred on Saturday morning on the M6.

    "As the incident is subject to police enquiries, the club feels it would be inappropriate to make any comment at this stage."

    Emergency services said the crash happened just before 5.45am on the motorway's southbound carriageway near junction 16 in Staffordshire.

    The M6 around junction 16A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "On arrival, crews found two cars which had been involved in a collision. One of the cars had left the carriageway."

    The people carrier went down and embankment and hit trees.

    The spokesman continued: "One child was confirmed dead at the scene. A second was taken on blue lights to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire. Staff at the hospital had been put on alert awaiting the arrival of the child who later died.

    "A number of other people have also been taken to hospital."

    One man is believed to be in a critical condition.

    You've lost me on this one. You're going to have to help me out.

    I was pointing out to Rich B that the name of the footballer involved had already been revealed by PDS earlier. It wasn't a mistake I was pointing out.
