Milly and Toby Savill married in 2017 and have been described as a ‘devoted’ couple

A British couple killed in a buggy crash on the Greek island of Santorini have been named as two teachers who worked in south London.

Milly and Toby Savill had been driving on the Profitis Ilias mountain when the vehicle fell into a 200-metre ravine on Sunday afternoon, local media reported.

Mrs Savill’s father, Steve Coulson, paid tribute to the couple saying they “were utterly devoted to one another”.

The Foreign Office said it was in contact with the Greek authorities.

Mr Coulson, a vicar at St Mark’s Kennington, said: “Their families are so proud of them, and although devastated, we are comforted by having shared so many wonderful times of love and joy together.”

Mr Savill, 26, taught history at Ark Evelyn Grace Academy and joined the Brixton-based school in September 2018 as a newly qualified teacher.

Principal Tim Dainty said everyone at Evelyn Grace Academy was “deeply saddened” by the deaths.

He added: “His enthusiasm was infectious. He had a very strong relationship with his students and was extremely well-respected by his fellow staff members.

“He will be greatly missed by one and all.”

Mrs Savill, 25, taught at St Anne’s Catholic primary school in Vauxhall and was described by head teacher Catherine Davis as a “much-loved member of staff”.

Santorini is in the south of the Aegean Sea, south east of the Greek capital Athens.
