One of the survivors of a coach crash in Turkey which killed three British tourists arrived home last night for treatment for chest injuries.

The middle-aged man was admitted to Glasgow Royal Infirmary, where a spokesman described his condition as "serious but stable". A second British survivor, who had been expected to fly to Glasgow, was taken instead to hospital in Graz, Austria, after her condition deteriorated while the air ambulance made a refuelling stop.

A further 29 passengers are expected to arrive at Glasgow airport today, together with 12 relatives who have travelled to Turkey since Saturday's accident.

The 42 tourists on the coach had arrived on a flight from Glasgow and were on their way to a resort in the south-west of Turkey when a lorry ploughed into them near Marmaris.
