40 students whose coach crashed in France on the way to a holiday centre in Italy will return to the UK tonight.

42 students were on board the coach when it crashed close to the Swiss border.

One was airlifted to hospital with what are described as "life-threatening" injuries. Another was seriously injured. Their families are at their bedsides.

Our thoughts continue to be with the two students and their close family, who are seriously injured in hospital in France and will not be returning to the UK for now. I am pleased to be able to confirm that the parents of both students are now with their children and are being supported by the school and other relevant agencies.
