A man has admitted to causing the death of a famous author's daughter and her three dogs in a horror crash.
Olivia Riley, 41, was struck and killed along with two Labradors and a golden retriever by drug driver Laszlo Dancs, 28, who appeared at the Old Bailey to plead guilty.
He is admitted causing death by dangerous driving, driving while intoxicated with a controlled prescription drug over the prescribed limit, and driving while over the alcohol limit.

Dancs struck and killed the stepdaughter of author Lucinda Riley, who had been looking after the writer's estate at the time of her death.
It was heard Dancs had 128mg of benzoylecgonine in his system, a cocaine chemical breakdown, as well as 137milligrams of alcohol in his blood sample.
Dancs, who denies refusing to take a breathalyser test at the scene of Olivia's death, had a blood sample that showed he was over the legal limit of 80milligrams of blood alcohol content.
The 28-year-old pizza restaurant worker was bailed ahead of a sentencing appearance on July 28 over the "heartbreaking incident", The Sun reported.
Olivia had been walking her dogs at the time of the horror crash on May 14 last year when an Audi TT driven by Dancs fatally struck her and her pups.

Her sister, taking to Facebook and addressing the horrific news, wrote: "Early [on Saturday] my sister Livi was doing what she loved: walking her three dogs, which as everyone knows were her pride and joy.
"Heartbreakingly, she was involved in a fatal accident in Chelsea and passed away at the scene."
Another tribute was left by her uncle Mark, who said his loved one was "one in a million" and that she "lived life to the full".
He wrote: "Certainly the tributes that have been pouring in … are all saying the same thing, that she was one in a million and nobody can come to terms with this tragedy, this loss. She saw the best in everyone and lived life to the full."
