AN investigation has started into why a coach driver returned to a school with rowdy pupils.

The incident happened on Wednesday afternoon when pupils from Samuel Whitbread Community College, Clifton, were being taken back to the school from Stotfold.

This afternoon college principal Robert Robson said in a statement: "We are looking into the incident which we were made aware of last night.

"There appears to have been a problem on the bus with some students who did not behave properly and the driver decided to take them back to the college so that this behaviour could be dealt with by college staff.

One pupil told the Comet: "We were crying for him to stop. We were frightened and flying out of our seats."

Her mother said: "It would have been more sensible to have let the children off the bus in Stotfold instead of taking them back to the school. They were so scared when they got back to the school they didn't want to get on another bus.
