The crash at the junction of Buckingham Palace Road and Victoria Street severely damaged the front left corner of the double-decker bus, smashing part of its windscreen.

The number 16 bus appeared to have almost completed its journey from Cricklewood, north-west London, to Victoria Station.

The bus was run by Metroline for Transport for London.
