Miss Ashworth died after the Vauxhall Corsa in which she was a passenger collided with a tree on Division Lane, Marton, on July 11 last year.

Jones’ case had been listed for a plea and case management hearing when she appeared at Preston Crown Court yesterday.

However, the hearing was adjourned by a judge at the request of the defence to a new plea and case management hearing to take place on June 11.

A date for possible trial in the case has been identified as October 23.

The 18-year-old was remanded on unconditional bail by Judge Stuart Baker.
