Alton Towers owners Merlin are to appear in court today over the Smiler crash which left five people seriously injured.

The company has previously been warned to expect a very large fine after indicating a guilty plea to a charge of breaching health and safety regulations after the collision, which occurred on June 2, 2015.

The sentencing hearing, at Stafford Crown Court, is expected to last for two days.
