Coach driver who caused deaths of two people in motorway fog crash after drinking super-strength lager is jailed for six years

A coach driver who caused the deaths of two people while over the drink-drive limit has been jailed for six years.

Jasminder Singh Dhesi had been drinking high-strength lager hours before his unroadworthy coach broke down three times in heavy fog.

He parked it in the slow lane of the southbound carriageway on the M5 where it was eventually struck by a Volvo HGV.

Birmingham Crown Court heard that Dhesi, 50, failed a roadside breath test after the crash, which claimed the lives of coach passenger and father-of-three Liaquat Ali, 35, and lorry driver William Mapstone, 65.
