One of two British women holidaymakers injured in a coach crash in southern Cuba is in intensive care in hospital.

Cuban state media say Irish, Russian, Dutch, Czech and Philippine nationals were also among the 16 passengers on the bus, which overturned near the city of Cienfuegos on Thursday evening.

Three women are still in hospital, including the two Britons, one of whom is in intensive care, the BBC reported.

The hospital said the condition of all three women was stable.

All the tourists on the bus were taken to hospital in Cienfuegos but most have now been discharged.

It is not yet known what caused the bus to swerve off the road on its way from the colonial town of Trinidad to the beach resort of Varadero.

A spokesman for the British Embassy in Havana said it was raining at the time of the crash and an official investigation has been launched.
