Three teenagers knocked over by the terrorist’s car has been identified as Victor, Yann and Thomas
All were in the “exact line that the car took”, said a source at St Joseph's high school in Concarneau, the seaside town in Brittany, on France's north west coast.
“Two of them are in a particularly bad way, and are being treated at St Thomas' hospital in London. Members of their families, including parents, are now with them.”
The French government put on a military plane last night, which flew them from Brittany to London.
Isabell Calveze, whose son Kilian was in the St Joseph's party of around 90, said she soon established that he was unharmed physically, but in a very bad way psychologically.
Mme Calveze said: “My son saw everything, I knew quickly that he was fine, but he saw his comrades hit by the car and I imagine that psychologically it must be a shock, and that he won't be well after this.

“But the pupils were taken care of very quickly and very well, they were greeted on a boat on the Thames and the British authorities debriefed them.”
Mme Calveze said that her daughter in France first told her about the terrorist incident.

"It was my daughter who alerted me, I did not have time to be afraid, I looked at the news channels and I got in touch with my son.”
Parents and other relatives of the children were today gathering around St Joseph's, along with other concerned locals.
Today André Fidelin, the Mayor of Concarneau, said it was the second time that the school had been hit by terrorism. In November 2015, former St Joseph's pupil Estelle Rouat, 25, was in the Bataclan concert hall in Paris when it was turned into a bloodbath by Islamic State suicide bombers.
Mlle Rouat, who was working as an English teacher, was murdered alongside 88 others as she attended a concert by the American band Eagles of Death Metal.

Mlle Rouat had a particular love of Britain, having first gone on a trip to Penzance, Cornwall, which is Concarneau's twin town, when she was at St Joseph's.
She had worked in Colchester, Essex, before moving to Paris, where she was hit by gunfire.
Her boyfriend, Remi, was seriously injured alongside her.
Mayor Fidelin said: 'It's terrible, because a psychosis is likely to set in at the school because it has already been affected by terrorism. 'Our emotion is intense. Concarneau is again touched by terror and horror, and we can not imagine the anguish and anxiety of the parents.”
