A Royal Navy worker was killed when the car he was driving ploughed in to a tree.

Brett Richardson suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash which happened near Langley in the New Forest at around 1am on Saturday.

His front seat passenger, Steven Ritchie, 24, a craftsman in the army with 17 Port and Maritime Regiment, from Manston Court Road in Margate, Kent, also died from his injuries.

Mr Richardson was a 27-year-old stores accountant with the Royal Navy from Mansfield Road in Gosport.

A third man who was also in the car at the time of the crash was taken to Southampton General Hospital.

The 21-year-old from Calshot remains in a serious condition but his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

Anyone who witnessed the crash, or saw the Subaru prior to it, is asked to contact PC Gary Cummins quoting Operation Tintern on 0845 045 45 45 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

IPCC will not probe fatal crash

A police watchdog will not probe a fatal crash in which father-of-one Brett Richardson died.

When the 27-year-old navy stores accountant, of Mansfield Road, Gosport, died in a road collision Hampshire police referred the incident to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

That was because a police sprinter van was on patrol in the area at the time but was not pursuing the blue Subaru in which Mr Richardson was travelling.

The commission has since told the force it does not believe the presence of the police vehicle played a part in the incident and will not investigate.

The fatal collision, which happened in Lepe Road, Fawley, on May 7, is being investigated by Hampshire police's Road death Investigation Team.

Steven Ritchie, 24, of Marchwood Military Port, also died in the crash.
