Three die and 50 hurt as coach hits oak tree
Tributes were paid last night to a coach driver who was behind the wheel of a vehicle that crashed on its way back from a music festival, leaving two others dead and 50 injured.
The coach was returning to Merseyside from the Bestival event on the Isle of Wight when it careered off the road and hit a tree near Hindhead, Surrey.
The vehicle was carrying festivalgoers along the A3 in the direction of London when it left the road at a bend between the Hindhead tunnel and the exit for Thursley and hit an oak tree on an embankment.
