Double decker bus roof ripped off by bridge at Harpenden train station

A double decker bus has had its roof ripped off after driving under a railway bridge near Harpenden train station in Hertfordshire.

The bus was owned by coach firm Uno and got stuck just before 8.30am, leaving Station Road in Harpenden closed.

The bus was empty at the time, and no injuries occurred as a result of the incident.

The St Albans Review reported that Uno confirmed they would be speaking to the driver to discover why we was covering the wrong route, which led to him crashing into the railway bridge.

General manager Michael Finn told the BBC: "Passenger and public safety is Uno's main priority and a full investigation is taking place to determine how the incident happened."

The bus has now been removed and the road has been reopened.
