The Director of the Kent-based coach company Travelmaster says the company will "co-operate fully" with the police and accident investigators, after one of its coaches was involved in a fatal collision on the M1 in Bedfordshire this morning.
Tim Lambkin says the driver passed all routine checks at the scene, including a breath test and is now being questioned by police. The coach was in a collision with a car which had stopped on the hard shoulder near Flitwick. Three men died at the scene, and a fourth man has been taken to John Radcliffe Hospital with serious injuries.
Mr Lambkin told ITV News Anglia that it is too early to speculate on what happened. He said his thoughts are with the families of those involved.
