Two months on from a double bus crash in County Durham, the families of 15 school-children involved have launched legal action for compensation. Nearly 30 pupils were injured when the two vehicles collided - on a school run - near Stanley. Jonny Blair has the story:
The families of school children who were on-board two buses which crashed head-on in County Durham are taking legal action as they seek to find out exactly what went wrong.
28 children and two bus drivers were taken to hospital after the crash on June 3. The pupils, aged 11-18, were from St Bede's Catholic School, Lanchester, and Tanfield School.
Lawyers at Irwin Mitchell, which has an office in Newcastle, have so far been instructed to represent 15 children injured in the crash in Stanley when a double-decker and a single-decker bus collided.
