Three members of a British family have been killed after a head on collision with a truck in south Croatia.
The incident, which happened on the Adriatic coast road on the way to popular tourist destination Dubrovnik, left two children and their father dead while the man's wife and another child are critically injured.
Both the woman and the child are in intensive care with doctors saying that the mother has the more serious injuries of the two.
The car the family were travelling in struck a concrete verge on the side of the road and veered into the path of a truck coming in the opposite direction, according to reports.
A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: "We are aware of an incident in Dubrovnik and we are in touch with the local authorities. We stand ready to provide consulate assistance".
