Seven face bus death crash trial

Seven travel firm workers were yesterday sent for trial at Canterbury Crown Court in connection with a coach crash in which nine American tourists and their British driver died.

In the accident in November 1993, the 53-seater coach collided with a van on the M2 in Kent and rolled down an embankment. On board were 44 tourists on a trip to Canterbury.

The company involved used to be called Travellers Coach Company Ltd, but the allegations are in the new name of Brelaton Ltd, based at Hounslow, Middlesex. The seven face charges of conspiring to falsify drivers' records.
