Eight children who survived a coach crash in Switzerland which left 28 people dead are flying home to Belgium.

The coach was carrying 52 people back to Belgium after a school skiing trip when it struck the wall of a tunnel.

All six adults on board were killed along with 22 children.

Many of the children who survived are still in hospital, three in a serious condition.

Families of some of the victims visited the scene of Tuesday night's disaster, walking into the tunnel to lay flowers.

The Belgian authorities are preparing to fly home the bodies of those who died, although nine of the children are still to be identified.
