Ten in hospital after UK teacher dies in crash in France

Ten people remain in hospital after a coach carrying a Worcestershire school party back from a skiing trip crashed in northern France, killing a teacher.

Peter Rippington, 59, who taught at Alvechurch School, died and more than 20 people were hurt in the crash near Chalons-en-Champagne early on Sunday.

One theory is that he fell asleep at the wheel.

Christian Fraser reports.
