Two helicopters were dispatched to the site after the bus landed on its side in a ditch, and the victims were rushed to hospital. Members of the group have been taken to the nearby town of Courlaoux. A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are providing support to a group of British nationals following a coach crash in France. We are in contact with the relevant local authorities.”
The bus had reportedly travelled from north Wales. The coach was run by Express Motors in Caermarfon, a family company which provides executive coaches for journeys across the UK and Europe.
A spokesmen for the company refused to comment.
