Coach crash: Embassy hopes to return injured to the UK

A teacher has been killed and more than 20 people hurt after a coach crashed while bringing a Worcestershire school party home from a skiing trip in Italy.

Pupils from Alvechurch School were among 49 people on the coach, which crashed near Chalons-en-Champagne, in northern France, early on Sunday.

Britain's Ambassador to France, Sir Peter Ricketts, visited the hospital where some of the injured are being treated and said the embassy was working to return those injured to the UK.
