Seventy-five people, mainly children, were taken to hospital after two holiday coaches carrying American tourists crashed in the centre of Bangor, Gwynedd, yesterday.

The coaches were travelling in convoy down a steep hill when one crashed into the back of the other, shattering windows and shunting it into a wall.

Most of the injuries were minor - many passengers suffered shock - but there were six people with serious injuries.
