Bus crashes, gets stuck under bridge in Leicester

A double-decker bus has smashed into the bottom of a bridge in Leicester, getting stuck underneath.

Five people were injured in the accident, according to local news reports.

The filmer, Talat, is a local driving instructor. He said that he had been in a lesson with his pupil at the time.

"We were at the Wyvern Avenue traffic lights junction, turning right to Barkby Road when we saw the bus hitting the bridge and noise was very loud", he said.

"We both were extremely shocked at what we just saw. We could see there was no one on top of the bus so I assume very minor injuries to the people on board."

The bus company will be looking into the matter.

"We will be undertaking an investigation into the cause of the incident", First Bus said in a statement published by Leicestershire Live.
