VIDEO: Families call for law change after coach crash

The families of three people killed in a coach crash are calling for a change in the law after it was revealed the tyre that burst on the coach was second hand and almost 20 years old.

Two passengers and the driver died, and more than 50 people were injured, in the accident on the A3 near Hindhead last year. The coach was on its way back from the Bestival music festival on the Isle of Wight.

At an inquest today, the families of those killed said they would take action to make sure a tragedy doesn't happen again. Heather Edwards reports and we hear from relatives Francis Molloy and Freya Woolsgrove.
