Ten passengers on a coach from Medway which crashed in the Scottish highlands on Thursday are still being treated in hospital.

The coach, carrying dozens of tourists, was travelling on the A83 at the Rest And Be Thankful in Argyll.

It rolled down an embankment and came to a stop just yards from the edge of a loch.

Police believe the high winds in the area at the time were a possible factor.

Twenty-three of the 52 people on board the Lochs and Glens Holidays coach were taken to hospital following the crash.

As of Saturday, ten of them were still being treated in hospital, with one in a serious but stable condition at the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow, where two others are in a stable condition.

The three patients at the Western Infirmary in Glasgow and four patients at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley are all in a stable condition, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said.

Some of the passengers earlier spoke of their ordeal, describing what happened as the bus came off the road.

Wendy Bysouth told BBC Reporting Scotland: "People were going up in the air, the glass was breaking, the windows were breaking, the curtains were going and we were getting nearer and nearer the loch.

"That's all I can remember, thinking, one more roll and we're in the loch, and it was so, so frightening.''

Fellow passenger Dave Russell added: "When it flipped over, I was looking at that water - I thought we were going in and there was no way we would have got out if it had gone in.''

Lochs and Glens Holidays run a number of coach trips, mainly in the Scottish Highlands, but pick up passengers across the UK.

The company's Twitter page said the coach was from the Medway Towns area.

A spokeswoman said: ''We are liaising with the emergency services regarding the injured passengers and to establish the cause of the accident.''
