A public inquiry will investigate what involvement two former directors of a collapsed coach firm had in two other companies.

GHA Coaches, based in Ruabon, Wrexham, went into administration in July with the loss of 320 jobs after failing to pay a tax bill.

Gareth and Arwyn Lloyd Davies were later disqualified from holding public transport operator licences.

A new inquiry will look at their involvement in two Shropshire firms.

It will investigate whether they are still involved in RJs, of Wem, and RML 2418 Ltd and it will consider a report from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, which has been investigating driver working hours and whether vehicles were roadworthy.

The hearing will take place in Birmingham on 5 December.
