British tourists in Kenya coach crash

A coach carrying 15 people, including a number of British tourists, crashed in the coastal city of Mombasa in Kenya on Saturday morning.

The Daily Mirror reports that the number of Britons travelling on the coach was not known.

There are thought to be some injuries but they are not believed to be life-threatening.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: 'There has been a coach crash that we are aware of.

'We believe there are British nationals involved, and there are some injuries.

'We are sending staff there now and we'll have more details later.

'Indications are the injuries are not life-threatening but we won't know for certain until our people are on the scene.'

According to Metro, early reports suggest the coach veered off the road as it was heading for Moi International Airport and six passengers are believed to have been taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Mombasa, on the east coast of Kenya bordering the Indian Ocean, is a popular destination for tourists.
