The number of learner drivers involved in fatal road crashes has trebled over four years.

11 learner drivers were involved in collisions in which someone died last year, compared to 3 in 2019.

The figures are contained in a briefing document by the Road Safety Authority which has been seen by the Irish Independent.

It's resulted in calls for an urgent ban of drivers repeatedly getting learner permits.
