A British bus with 34 schoolchildren on board overturned and crashed on a motorway in Belgium yesterday morning, killing one of the two drivers, a local mayor said.

None of the children from the Brentwood School in Essex nor the six accompanying adults were seriously injured in the accident, which happened when the driver lost control of the vehicle on a stretch of the E40 motorway near the Belgian coast.
