An Irish couple has been involved in a minibus crash in Turkey.

It is understood the incident happened in Kusadasi yesterday while the bus was travelling to the airport.

A source told their injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

A spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs confirmed they are aware of the case and are providing consular assistance.

Kusadasi is a beach resort on the west coast of Turkey that is extremely popular with Irish tourists.

A family from Donegal were injured in a serious car accident in the resort back in 2015 - when the jeep they were travelling in lost control.
