The road was closed for some time, and witnesses reported seeing the bus driver receiving treatment shortly after the crash.

David Winskill, former local councillor and community activist, told the Ham&High he had been “shocked” by the crash.

He added: “The driver seems to have smashed into a white car for some reason.

“Luckily there was a doctor around locally to look after people. There was a lot of broken glass.”

A Met Police spokesperson confirmed officers were called to the incidentat 4.49pm, and despite the dramatic collision, said no-one had been seriously injured.
