Pupils have been paying tribute to the teacher who died in a coach crash in France on the weekend.

Peter Rippington, or Mr Rip, as he was known to his pupils, taught maths and sport at Alvechurch Middle School in Worcestershire for many years.

He was one of 49 people travelling back from a school ski trip when the accident happened.

Rebecca Wilks, who used to be in Mr Rippington's form said: "He was just the most amazing teacher."

One group of pupils left an apple with the message: "You were a one of a kind teacher and can never be replaced. You were funny, kind and always made everyone's day."
