A professional footballer has been arrested after two boys were killed in a crash on the M6 in Staffordshire.

The youngsters, aged eight and 10, died after a Toyota Previa people carrier careered down an embankment following a collision with a Range Rover.

Police held the player, who was driving the Range Rover, on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The 37-year-old driver of the Previa was critically injured and a man and two children suffered minor injuries.

The arrested man was not hurt, police said.

The motorway was closed southbound between junctions 16 and 15 following the incident in the early hours of Saturday morning, and reopened at lunchtime.

One boy was pronounced dead at the scene and the other died at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire in Stoke-on-Trent.

It is not known which club the footballer plays for.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police.

And your response to post #7 is (if we are picking up on others mistakes)? :icon_wink

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.
