Fifteen people were injured – two seriously – after a coach carrying Welsh teenagers crashed in eastern France.

The bus was reportedly on route to Italy when it crashed on the motorway near Lons-le-Saunier, towards the Swiss border.

It is believed that 48 people were travelling on the bus, with the majority of the passengers aged between 14 and 17.

Two helicopters were dispatched to the scene.

The UK Foreign Office said it is aware of the incident but is yet to confirm any details.
