“You grasped every opportunity that life presented to you, displaying so much passion, enthusiasm and determination in pursuit of your dreams. 

“All this without forgetting to care about people, being there for others and having time for those that needed it. 

“We will miss you so much but you will always be in our thoughts, hearts and prayers. 

“Love Mum, Dad and Emma xxx.”

A second teenage girl was taken to hospital with minor injuries and others were treated at the roadside.

West Midlands Police said the bus was also carrying four adults – the driver and three teachers.

No arrests have been made; however police said that both drivers were assisting with the “detailed and thorough” investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the collision and has not already spoken to police should call 101 and ask for the Collision Investigation Unit.
