The police spokesperson confirmed all passengers on board the bus were British tourists and were being transported by the privately-hired, Spanish-registered coach from Praia da Rocha to Faro airport.


The driver is a Portuguese national.

 

The accident, which occurred near the Areeiro Tunnel between Loulé and Faro at just before 8am, resulted in this particular stretch of the motorway being closed as rescue workers attempted to prise the injured from the wreckage. At least two people were reportedly incarcerated.

 

Police confirmed an investigation will now be launched into the cause of the accident.
