Chinese police find 66 children in minivan meant for eight

A vehicle designed to carry only a handful of passengers has been caught transporting eight times its legal capacity.

Police in China's Hebei Province were shocked to find dozens of school children packed into a bus that was only licenced to carry eight people.

The bus had been modified to pack in as many children as possible, with four benches replacing the seats.

The children and their teachers were forced to abandon their journey as 12 police vans were dispatched to take the pupils home safely.
