A special service has been held to remember the Alvechurch School teacher who died in a coach crash in France.

Maths and games teacher Peter Rippington died and more than 20 others were hurt in a crash on their way back from a school skiing trip last Sunday.

About 200 people attended a service at St Laurence Church in Alvechurch, Worcestershire, on Sunday.

The Reverend David Martin said it was a chance for the community to remember everyone affected by the crash.
