Pupils hurt in coach crash

EIGHT British schoolchildren were injured yesterday after a coach bringing them home from a skiing holiday collided with a German tourist bus on a snow-covered road about 36 miles west of Innsbruck, Austria. The pupils, from schools in Cardiff, Llanelli, Newcastle Emlyn, and Chatham, were not badly hurt and later left hospital.
