Two quick thinking children have been praised after they managed to stop their school bus from crashing on Monday.

The bus had been approaching Surprise Lake Middle School in Milton, Washington, when the driver became ill, lost consciousness and let go of the wheel.

CCTV footage from inside the bus reveals the dramatic moment when 13-year-old Jeremy Wuitschick realised what was happening and took control.
