Two Cumbrian students who died in a coach crash will be remembered on the first anniversary of their deaths.

Keswick School pupils Chloe Walker, 16, and Kieran Goulding, 15, died when a 49-seater coach collided with a car near Keswick.

The school said they were sadly missed by the whole community and a memorial service is being held.

The car driver, Patrick Short, 68, from Braithwaite, also died in the crash on 24 May last year

A number of other pupils were also injured. At the service there will be readings by classmates, music and prayers.

'Difficult year'

The school has a memorial garden dedicated to Chloe and Kieran where flowers can be laid to mark the anniversary and books of condolence will be opened.

In a statement, chairman of governors Sarah Peck said: "This has been a difficult year for the school and many of our pupils and staff are still suffering from the effects of the accident.

"Thanks must be given to all the pupils and staff who have helped and supported each other through this period.

"We cannot begin to imagine the effect this has had upon all the families concerned and our hearts and thoughts go out to them at this time.

"Kieran and Chloe will always be in our memories."
