Two teenagers have died in a car crash after their vehicle hit a telegraph pole and two trees, police said.

The two 19-year-olds died when the car they were in left the B717 Benhar Road in Shotts, North Lanarkshire, at around 1:50am, according to Strathclyde Police.

Police said a Renault Clio was travelling south on Benhar Road when the driver appeared to lose control of the car, and it careered across the carriageway.

The 19-year-old front seat passenger died at the scene along with another 19-year-old man.

Two other men - aged 20 and 17 - were taken by ambulance to Wishaw General Hospital.

The 20-year-old suffered a punctured lung, and doctors describe his condition as serious but stable. The 17-year-old sustained a broken leg.

Enquiries are ongoing and police are appealing for witnesses.
