The Prime Minister has paid tribute to the emergency services and teaching staff in Llanfair Caereinion after Monday's bus crash that injured five primary age children.

Montgomeryshire MP Craig Williams addressed a question to the Prime Minister about the incident on Monday, in which a coach with no passengers on board struck a number of children.

During Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, Mr Williams said: "On Monday at 3.25pm a school bus crashed into a group of school children in Llanfair Caereinion.

"Three children were airlifted to hospital, with another child and the bus driver taken by ambulance, and another child was treated and discharged at the scene.

"Everyone is in a stable condition. Clearly this is a tragic accident that will stay with the community for some time.

"Will the Prime Minister join me and I'm sure the whole house in sending our love and prayers, to those in hospital, and will he also praise the teaching staff of both the primary and high school, and the Welsh Air Ambulance and Dyfed Powys Police for their heroic response and their continuing response to the incident."

In response Mr Johnson said: "I thank my honourable friend for raising this very sad incident.

"The whole house's thoughts are with those who have been affected. I want to join him in paying tribute to the emergency services, but also to the teachers and staff at the school who did so much to help."

The question came shortly before the Prime Minister delivered a statement to the house following the publication of today's Sue Gray report into lockdown-breaking parties in Downing Street.
