Double-decker bus crashes into Truro scaffolding

First Devon and Cornwall bus, Truro
First Devon and Cornwall has apologised to its passengers

A double-decker bus has crashed into scaffolding in Cornwall.

One of the top windows of the bus fell out of the vehicle when it struck a scaffolding pole in Truro and smashed.

The First Devon and Cornwall number 88 bus service was en route to Falmouth when the incident happened in the city's Boscawen Street.

No-one was injured, but the bus was taken out of service and all the passengers were transferred to other services.

In a statement, First said: "We have contacted the scaffolding company to make them aware of the issue and have warned all other First drivers in the area to be aware of the scaffolding and to take extra care when passing the building concerned.

"We would like to offer our apologies to anyone who found their journey was inadvertently delayed this morning as a result of this incident."
