A bus has crashed into a house in Coventry after a collision with a car.

Four people - including the bus driver - were injured in the smash in Keresley Road on Monday morning.

The 44-year-old bus driver and a passenger who was sitting on the back seat both suffered leg injuries.

Two people were in the car at the time and were also seen by paramedics.

Images showed the double-decker after it had ploughed into the house and emergency services at the scene.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said all those hurt were treated at the scene.

One person was inside the house at the time and is understood to have escaped injury, the the Coventry Telegraph reported.

Most of the family were away at the time of the accident.

One person told the paper a child usually sleeps in the front bedroom of the house - near to where the bus smashed into it.

A spokeswoman for National Express, which runs the bus service, said the firm was "cooperating closely with the authorities in their investigations into this incident".

"Coventry services 16 and 5 are diverted until further notice and we apologise to our passengers for any delay to their journeys," she added.
