A speeding driver who died in a crash which also killed his girlfriend was two-and-a-half times over the drink-drive limit, an inquest has found.

Stuart Moorat, 27, reached speeds of more than 60 mph (97km/h) before crashing into a wall at Le Catioroc, Guernsey on 21 July.

Georgina Le Prevost, 25, was rendered unable to breathe by the impact.

The couple had been returning from a wedding reception at the time of the crash.

No other vehicle was involved.

Shortly before 23:00 BST, Mr Moorat drove his BMW away from the reception, with Miss le Prevost in the front passenger seat.

At about 23:15 on a stretch of the Perelle coast road, the car went off the road and on to rocks.
Toxicology results showed Mr Moorat had blood alcohol levels of 206mg per 100ml. The legal limit is 80mg per 100ml.

A toxicologist concluded Mr Moorat's blood alcohol levels were "consistent with intoxication", and despite cannabis also being detected in his blood "alcohol alone" impaired his driving skills.
