Polish police spokesman Marek Kapusta said the driver probably fell asleep behind the wheel, causing the bus to cross into the opposite lane before landing in a ditch and hitting a tree near the village of Gorzno-Kolonia, about 47 miles south-east of Warsaw.

Mr Kapusta said the passengers were probably all Ukrainian.

He said three people were killed instantly and another two died in a hospital, while 25 other people, including two children, remain in hospital.
