In a letter to parents, headteachers Jill Martin and David Barrs said: "All students had been wearing seat belts including two who had received official warnings about not doing so only last week.

"All passengers sit above the collision-impact zone. This was an important factor in minimising injuries."

A woman in her 80s, who was on the passenger bus and suffered a facial injury, returned home after treatment at hospital.
