A coach, carrying pupils and staff from Middlesbrough's Trinity Catholic College, on a trip to Alton Towers was evacuated just before bursting into flames at Woodhall service station yesterday afternoon.

Luckily no one was injured. The college's headteacher said the coach had stopped as a precaution after developing engine problems and burst into flames moments after children and staff left the bus.
