A Danish driver who was involved in a crash which killed three Irish children in July has spoken for the first time about the accident.

Lasse Burholt, 39, told the Sunday Independent he believes mum-of-four Maria O'Shea was not to blame for the motoring tragedy which has been described as Denmark's worst "in living memory".

Mr Burholt was driving to his father's house near Lendum, North Jutland, on July 16 when he collided with Maria's Citroen Berlingo.
