A North East bus driver who died in a crash in the French Alps has been hailed as a hero.
The quick thinking of 64-year-old Maurice Wrightson, a driver with County Durham firm Classic Coaches, is thought to have saved the lives of the passengers on board.
He steered his coach into a tree to stop it going over the edge of a mountain after it developed problems.
Investigators are now trying to establish exactly what went wrong.
