A further two British nationals were on board the bus.We are in contact with both; one has some injuries and we have visited him in hospital in Bangkok and are providing assistance. The families of the deceased have been informed and we are helping them through this extremely difficult time.”

The three, who landed in Thailand last week, were named as Conrad Quashie, Bruno Melling-Firth and Maximilian Boomgaarden-Cook. They were former students at the Charter School in Dulwich, south London.
