A minibus driver involved in the M62 crash which killed teenager Bethany Jones has been arrested.

The Express understands a 62-year-old man from Bradford has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and released on bail pending further enquiries.

Bethany, of Bradley Carr Terrace, South Elmsall, was one of 21 women travelling on the minibus to a hen party in Liverpool when the vehicle collided with a lorry at junction 32 on April 26.

The 18-year-old trainee nurse died at the scene and several others, including bride-to-be Stefanie Firth, were taken to hospital.

The lorry driver, from St Helen’s, was previously arrested on suspicion of the same offence and it is believed he remains on police bail.
