Four people are seriously injured and 25 others hurt after a bus heading from Paris to London overturned in France.
The bus, which was carrying some British passengers, flipped onto its side on a wet highway in the northern Somme region of France.
The prefecture of the Somme said 32 passengers were on board at the time.
The injured were taken to a hospital in Amiens and several other regional facilities.
A press official, Hervé Fosse, said most of the injuries were not serious.
The local gendarmerie on the scene tweeted a photo of the bus on its side with its front window smashed.
The prefecture said the bus left the road near an exit, but provided no further details.
