The travel company, Interski, which organised the skiing holiday for Alvechurch School to France, has release a statement a year on from the crash that killed a teacher and left many students and adults with life-changing injuries.

Many people were deeply affected by the coach crash. The impending legal hearings will be a difficult time for all involved, both families and individuals. We again express our sadness to the unfortunate victims of this tragic event.
It would be inappropriate and insensitive to those who have suffered loss or injury to offer any opinion or observation while investigations are still ongoing and in advance of findings of the court.

The crash, which killed a teacher and injuring dozens more, has left the victims suffering from both physical and psychological injuries.
Steve Ratheram, a skiing instructor assisting Alvechurch Church School when it crashed, says life will never be the same.
