Death-toll in French crash rising

Published 22/07/2007

The death-toll in a French coach crash has risen to 26.

The bus carrying Polish pilgrims careered down a hillside at a notorious accident hot-spot and burst into flames near the city of Grenoble.

Several helicopters and a fleet of emergency vehicles ferried the injured to hospital.

It's thought the brakes may have failed.
