A man appeared in court yesterday charged with the killings of a young couple who were struck by a yellow Ferrari as they walked hand-in-hand along a pavement.

Jason Shultze appeared before Manchester magistrates charged with the manslaughter of Stuart Ward, aged 28, and his girlfriend Nathalie Monier, 22, from Marseilles, in Whalley Range in the city last week. The couple were hit by the pounds 100,000 sports car as they walked along Upper Chorlton Road near their home. Mr Shultze faces a total of eight charges, including the aggravated taking of the car and driving while disqualified. He was remanded in custody.
