One of the survivors of the Looe coach crash has told of the moment glass started shattering around her.

Two women died when the Age Concern trip went tragically wrong in Morval.

Four pensioners are still in hospital after the vehicle ran out of control and hit a wall on Tuesday.

The driver is out on bail - while police try to work out what went wrong.

Enid Goldup was among those who managed to scramble free.

She was wearing a seatbelt, but says some other passengers may not have been.

She told ITV Westcountry: "It just hit the side and glass came flying through.

"There was a jolt and I just thought, 'Oh my god, it's going to turn over."

Enid remembers the coach hit something hard, just before all the windows smashed.

She was sitting with a friend just in front of the back seat and remembers the distress of another passenger straight after the crash: "She kept saying, 'Oh my god, she's dead. I'm sure she's dead.' I think she knew - because her sister was sitting right next to the window on the back seat.

"It came through later her sister had died when she had arrived at hospital. That was awful. I felt so terribly sorry for her."
