Two men will be sentenced later today over the hit and run death of Violet-Grace Youens.
Aidan McAteer and Dean Brennan are due to be sentenced this morning in connection with the fatal road traffic collision.
Violet-Grace died after she was hit by a stolen car driven by 23-year-old McAteer as she crossed Prescot Road in St Helens.
The four-year-old was crossing the road with her grandmother, Angela French, who suffered serious injuries.
McAteer fled the country in the hours after the crash.
