A 19-year-old Wrexham woman who was badly injured in a coach crash in the French Alps is now back in the UK.

Catrin Pugh, from Rossett, was one of three Britons injured when the coach crashed and burst into flames near Alpe D'Huez a week ago.

She was transferred to Whiston Hospital, Merseyside, at the weekend, where her condition is described as "stable".

The Foreign Office said two Britons remain in hospital in France.

Ms Pugh was among more than 50 people on the coach when it crashed, killing driver Maurice Wrightson, 63, from Northumberland.

It is thought she was returning home after working the ski season in France.

Her family said in a statement they had been "overwhelmed" by good wishes and support.
