Stowaway clung to bottom of coach


Teachers led pupils returning from a French school trip in a sing-along to stop them from hearing a stowaway who was banging on the coach's underside.

The coach, heading back to Hummersknott Academy in Darlington, detoured until police officers could meet them and arrest the man who was hanging on to the rear axle of the coach.

The man did not come into contact with any of the 47 children, who were aged between 11 and 13.
