Two children killed in France crash


Two children have been killed and at least four more people injured in a school bus crash in eastern France.

The two 15-year-olds died when the driver lost control in snowy conditions and the bus overturned near Montflovin in the department of Doubs.

The driver and three children were slightly hurt in the crash as the bus travelled between Monteau and Pontarlier at about 07:40 (06:40 GMT).

They have been evacuated to Pontarlier. The road has been closed.

There are conflicting reports as to whether another vehicle was involved in the crash.

An operational centre has been set up and the accident is being investigated.
