The BBC are reporting that a major coach crash has occurred involving Isle of Wight festival goers returning to Merseyside. Three are reported dead and several others are in a serious condition.

We are waiting to find out if we are connected to anyone on the coach as it was returning to our area.

Our thoughts are with the affected people and families. We know only too well how these kinds of serious accidents can affect peoples lives forever. They probably had a great weekend and now face a battle to overcome this horrific incident.

Again our thoughts are with them.
