TWO children have suffered life-changing injuries after a devastating crash which killed three teens on their way home from school, say cops.

A 10-year-old girl and 12-year-old boy have undergone multiple operations following the B4035 smash near Shipston, Warwickshire, last month.

Cops confirmed the two school kids were injured in the collision which saw Harry Purcell, 17, Matilda Seccombe and Frank Wormald, both 16, lose their lives.

The youngsters remain in John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where they continue to receive treatment.

A spokesman for Warwickshire Police said: “Two children remain at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford following a series of operations and the family are keen to thank the medical staff there for their hard work so far.

"They would also like to express their gratitude and appreciation to the emergency service teams and members of the public who helped in the aftermath of the collision.

"Specialist officers are carrying out a detailed investigation to piece together the circumstances of the collision, and we are working with our partner agencies and the local authority.

“We would ask anyone who has not yet spoken to us to please get in touch, especially if you were travelling in the area and may have any information or dashcam footage.
