A double decker tourist bus in central London has crashed into tree ripping off its roof.

Four people were taken to hospital and nine others were treated by London Ambulance crews at the accident site in Bloomsbury near Russell Square Tube Station.

Witness, Craig Douglas told the Evening Standard: ‘The roof was hanging off even though the branch really did not look big enough to do it.

‘I don’t know how it happened.“Everyone was standing up and seemed rather okay. A few people were hugging and consoling each other.

‘It looked miraculous that everyone got away, the whole roof was off and there was glass all over the floor.’

The London Fire Brigade were forced to lift one passenger out of the upper deck.

A spokesman for Fire Brigade said: ‘We believe around 40 other passengers were uninjured and are being looked after by police and the London Ambulance Service in a nearby building.’
