Two people were trapped after the coach they were travelling in fell 30ft (10m) from a viaduct near Bath.

Emergency services were called to Brassknocker Hill, in Monkton Combe, on the B3108 at its junction with the A36 Warminster Road.

The fire service said both of the trapped victims had now been released by firefighters.

“Those people are now being treated by ambulance staff,” a spokesman said

“There were seven other passengers on board the coach, who have also been receiving medical treatment.” -[BBC]
