Lancashire pilgrims in Saudi coach crash

A coach carrying Muslim pilgrims from Blackburn has crashed in Saudi Arabia.

Around 50 people were travelling between Mecca and Medina, as part of the Hajj pilgrimage, when the coach was hit by a truck.

The Saudi driver was killed. Everyone else aboard suffered minor injuries.

It comes just days after hundreds of pilgrims died in a crush on the outskirts of the Holy City.

Rashid Mogradia is from the Council of British Hajjis, based in Bolton.
