A "psychotic" driver today (fri) admitted killing two young friends by mowing them down in a hit-and-run as they walked home.

Richard Frost, 39, careered into Thomas Fletcher, 19, and Thomas Northam, 22, in his BMW X5 before fleeing the badly damaged vehicle.

A court heard he took cocaine and speed from behind the wheel before crossing into the wrong side of the road to plough into the pair from behind on January 3 this year.
