AN ANGRY dad today spoke of his fury after his son and a schoolfriend were left stranded 200 miles from their Suffolk homes.

Stuart Edgar and Daniel Alderson had gone on a half-term trip to Alton Towers theme park, but as they approached the coach 35 minutes late the driver drove off leaving them behind.

Despite claims passengers asked the driver to stop, which are denied by the coach company, the bus moved on taking the 16-year-old boys' coats and Stuart's mobile phone with it.

Stuart's dad Alan said he was concerned what would have happened if his son had not been sensible and the security guards at the theme park had not looked after the two youngsters.
