The funeral of a couple who died in an horrific coach crash in Jordan will take place tomorrow.

Churchgoing Methodists Richard and Angela Fothergill, from Gosforth, in Newcastle, were among nine British tourists and three Jordanians killed during a trip to the Holy Land last month.

Their coach somersaulted and crashed into oncoming traffic after a tyre blew out on Jordan's Desert Highway as the tourists made their way to the ancient city of Petra.

Mr Fothergill, 67, and his 65-year-old wife, lived in Grenville Drive. Their funeral will take place at 1pm in Trinity Church, Gosforth, the church where the couple worshipped.
