A group of Norfolk school pupils who were stranded in Spain because of the volcanic ash flight ban has made it back to the county safely.

The 24 pupils and three teachers from Reepham High arrived back at their school on Saturday afternoon after a long journey back by coach.

The group had been on an exchange visit to a school in Segovia, central Spain, when their flight home on Wednesday was cancelled.

When Ryanair was unable to promise another flight for at least a week, the school and Norfolk County Council decided to send an Eastons coach from Norfolk to bring the group home.
