Peter and Miranda Harris, co-founders of A Rocha, and Chris Naylor, A Rocha International CEO, together with his wife Susanna, were travelling in South Africa.

In a statement, the charity said: "Miranda, Chris and Susanna did not survive. Peter and the driver of the car are being treated at a local hospital and are in a stable condition. We await further news on their progress.

"Above all, their families and friends are held in our prayers.”

The Bishop of Salisbury, the Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam said, “This is a terrible accident. Peter and Miranda Harris lived and worked to care for God’s creation. Our prayers are for those who have died, including Miranda Harris, and those who are injured, including Peter Harris.”

Local reports suggest the vehicle they were travelling in plunged off Swartkops Bridge in Port Elizabeth after colliding with a pick-up truck.

Peter and Miranda Harris founded the charity in 1983 to bring a Christian perspective to the environmental crisis.

The organisation now works in 20 countries across the world.
