Passengers hurt as buses collide
Five people were injured when two buses crashed in Derby city centre.

An Arriva bus heading to Burton was in collision with a bus, en-route to Trent Barton, on the Wardwick, just after 1300 GMT.

Paramedics treated casualties at the scene but all injuries are understood to be minor.

The street was cordoned off and diversions were in place for nearly three hours but the city centre is now back to normal.

Paul Holmes, a passenger on the Trent bus, said: "I was just aware that the bus I was on braked suddenly and the bus travelling behind ran into us.

"I was sat on the back seat of the bus that got hit but apart from being showered with glass, I am fine".
