Driver continues to be questioned over Cornwall crash

The driver of a coach that crashed killing two women continues to be questioned on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

One woman died at the scene while a second woman was taken by air ambulance to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth but was pronounced dead on arrival, police said.

A woman who lives in the nearby village of No Man's Land, said she had been told the coach had been taking pensioners on a trip to Looe when it crashed near the Snooty Fox country hotel.

Mrs Roberta Powley said:

I think they were all OAPs on a trip. They were heading down to Looe. They have opened up what used to be the Memorial Hall in Morval and giving them tea and coffee.

I was told the coach crashed at the Snooty Fox, and that is up a very steep hill going down into Looe.
