A coach driver whose vehicle overturned in icy conditions, killing two women and injuring nearly 50 people, has been praised for avoiding a bigger tragedy.
The coach rolled on to its side after skidding on ice on an ungritted road in Townshend, near Hayle, Cornwall.
The dead women have been named as Irene Spencer, 78, and Patricia Pryor, 70, who were both from Camborne.
