A man has denied attempting to murder four children who were found seriously injured following a car crash.

Two girls, aged seven and eight, and two boys, aged 21 and nine months, were hurt when Owen Scott, 29, crashed a car into a pub near Thurgoland, Barnsley.

Police said their injuries were “not all consistent with the collision”.

Sheffield Crown Court heard Scott, of Fawley, Hampshire, plead not guilty to four counts of attempted murder and deny dangerous driving.
