Feeder in coach-crash horror

Rockband Feeder have escaped unscathed after their tour bus crashed and exploded on a British motorway on Friday.

The Welsh group was travelling to play a show in Lincoln in east England after a gig in Glasgow, Scotland when the accident happened.

Their coach crashed on the M62 motorway and blew up, but the band and crew were not hurt.

A spokesperson said: "Everybody is safe. But all the merchandising and catering is destroyed. All the crew were left in their pants - (sports store) JD Sports kindly dressed them all today."

The band's current UK tour will not be affected by the accident.
