A man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, after two charity cyclists died on the A30 near Newquay.

Andrew McMenigall and Toby Wallace from Scotland were riding from Land's End to John O'Groats last July.

They and a lorry collided just after the Carland Cross roundabout.

A 32 year old from Bude is due in court next month.

At the time, their families said: "Both Andrew and Toby gave their free time to helping others.  Their compassion and humanity was boundless.  The bike ride was to raise money for the Kirsten Scott Memorial Trust, which provides opportunities for young people.  Kirsten was a 25-year-old colleague at Aberdeen who lost her battle with cancer five weeks after she was diagnosed.  Andrew was also raising money for It’s Good 2 Give, an Edinburgh based charity that offers support to young people with cancer, and their families.   One of his daughters had been diagnosed with, and recovered from a brain tumour."
