Two men who died when a double-decker bus and a lorry crashed on the A47 in Cambridgeshire have been named by police.

Mr Chapman was a verger at St Peter and St Paul Church in Kettering.
Paying tribute to him on Facebook, the church rector, David Walsh said it was "sad and shocking news for our church community".
"It's hard to imagine St Peter & St Paul's Church without him."

Six of those people were seriously injured, a spokesman added.
Most of the passengers were from Peterborough and one was from Hunstanton in Norfolk, the force said.
