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.

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.
