Prior's Court has posted a message on social media remembering the three members of staff who died when the school minibus they were travelling in was involved in a collision with a lorry on the M4 on October 11, 2018.

The minibus was carrying staff and pupils from the charity, which provides education and residential care for young people with complex autism aged between five-25.

Five staff and three young autistic adults, who were being supported to attend a regular work placement session, were injured in the crash, which happened on the eastbound carriageway between Hungerford and Chieveley.

The post ends: "Cathy, Jason and Lorraine – always with us."
