The driver involved in Monday's tipper truck crash in Bath, in which four people died, repeatedly sounded his horn in an apparent attempt to avert an accident, witnesses have told police.

Avon and Somerset Police have spoken "briefly" to the driver, who has minor injuries and is still in hospital.

The driver appears to have lost some sort of control.

This is a tragic incident in which three men and a young girl have lost their lives and we're carrying out a full and meticulous investigation.
