A bride was taken to hospital days after her wedding after a tourist bus had its roof ripped off when it hit a tree branch.
The double-decker hit an overhanging branch in Woburn Place in central London at around 1.10pm.
Four people were taken to hospital but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
Passenger Joseph Whelan was among a group of fellow Canadians on board the bus. He described the immediate aftermath as “total chaos” and said there was “blood all over the floor”.
The impact tore the entire roof and left it dangling from the upper deck and on to the road.
Those on the top floor helped patch up the injured with makeshift bandages and firefighters led stunned passengers to safety.
Firefighters have been called to Woburn Place in Bloomsbury after a tourist bus collided with the overhanging branch of a tree.
The impact removed the roof of the bus. Five people have been taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service (LAS). Around 40 other passengers, who are believed to be uninjured, are being looked after by police and LAS staff in a nearby building.
The Brigade was called at 1312. Two fire engines and a fire rescue unit from Euston and Islington fire stations attended the incident along with around 15 firefighters. Incident updates.
