Detective Constable Luke Taylor said: “Cameron Bailey deliberately drove his car at a group of young people - showing callous disregard for the consequences of his actions.

"His actions that evening could easily have resulted in the death or serious injury of numerous people - as it was, two teenagers were struck and required hospital treatment for their injuries.

“To make matters worse, Bailey failed to stop at the scene. This was a truly shocking incident and I am pleased to see him finally accept responsibility for what he did.”

Bailey has been remanded in custody ahead of sentencing on May 27.
