Coach Crash on French Motorway

Neil Lorimer settled claims against a tyre manufacturer and the coach operator, relating to a large number of deaths and casualties when 11 people, including six from Shropshire, were killed and 60 injured, when their holiday coach careered off a French motorway.

They were killed when the double-decker coach crashed on the A6 motorway near Auxerre, about 80 miles south of Paris. The coach went out of control and veered into a ditch. The victims were with other tourists, coming home from the Costa Brava in Spain when a tyre burst.
