Passengers hurt as bus hits house
The bus crashed into a house
Four people received minor injuries and the driver went to hospital
Five people were injured when a bus crashed into a terraced house on Sunday morning, police have said.

The Metrobus was driving through Crawley in West Sussex when it veered off the road.

Sussex Police said four passengers suffered minor injuries and the driver required hospital treatment, but was not thought to be seriously hurt.

Residents have been moved from six properties in Hassocks Court following the crash.

A spokeswoman for West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said: "We are still on the scene. The residents have been evacuated because it's unsafe."

The bus is not expected to be removed until Monday as the area needs to be made safe due to severe structural damage.

Sussex Police are investigating the cause of the collision and have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Metrobus operates services in London and the South East.
