The long-term partner of a pregnant vlogger who was killed in a moped crash in Thailand has been charged over her death.

It is believed that popular YouTube vlogger Sophie Emma Rose Anderson was killed whilst she was riding pillion on a scooter being driven by Danny Glass on the island of Phuket, on 8 May.

It is believed the scooter careered into an 18-wheel lorry where Anderson was crushed under the vehicle's wheels in the Thalang area.

Anderson was six months pregnant with Glass' child at the time of the incident. She suffered fatal head injuries.

The 29-year-old Glass escaped the crash with no serious injuries and Thai police say he is to be charged with causing death by reckless driving alongside the 30-year-old lorry driver Natt Awut Timsue.

Glass, originally from Margate, had been living with the 41-year-old Anderson at the time of her death.

He will be formally indicted on Thursday (18 May) with his family and a translator expected to attend.

Lt Col Sanit Nookong told the Phuket News: "Right now, the investigation is not yet closed because we are still waiting for the autopsy to be released. Then they will go to court."

The mother-of-one, originally from Blackpool, had appeared on ITV's This Morning Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby in 2016 where she expressed her belief that women should breast feed children until they're at least eight-years-old.

Anderson's videos posted to her YouTube channel Sophie's Joy Breastfeeding Mama had been watched by millions of people.

In the aftermath of her death Glass paid tribute to her saying he "missed her so much" and added "somebody wake me up from this nightmare."

On Tuesday he posted another video titled 'When will I come back to Youtube' saying: "The reason why I'm not making videos, it's not the right time at the moment," he said. "I just need to get my life in order, my life on track and get through this sad death that happened with Sophie."

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are in contact with the Thai police and are providing consular support to a British man following a road traffic accident in Bangkok."
