Two teenagers re-bailed in connection to Royston death crash

TWO teenagers have been re-bailed in relation to a fatal Royston collision where a 16-year-old boy died.

James Clennell, who would have been 17 this week, died after the Citroen Saxo he was travelling in overturned on Melbourn Street, striking a set of traffic lights, before hitting a brick wall and writing off a delivery vehicle.

He was pronounced dead in Lister Hospital, Stevenage, after being treated by paramedics at the scene.

An 18-year-old from Hertford and a 17-year-old from Royston have been re-bailed until September 5, no further action will be taken against a 17-year-old from Hertford.

Police reports claim the Saxo, and another vehicle, were performing u-turns on the A505 and a chase ensued when the driver sped away after being signalled to stop by a marked patrol car at around 1am on June 20.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is probing the incident.
