Bus crashes into house in village

Scene of the crash
The incident happened on Thursday afternoon in Pembridge

A bus has crashed into a house in a north Herefordshire village.

Nobody was injured in the incident, which happened in Pembridge at about 1430 BST on Thursday.

A Lugg Valley Travel bus heading into Kington left the main road into Pembridge and struck Nick Goodey's house.

Mr Goodey said it was lucky his children, who are on their Easter holidays, had not been in the garden or on a footpath outside.

He added: "I was at work, but my wife was inside.

"Nobody's injured, so everybody's all right, so that's the main thing.

"(There) could have been a lot of people out on the garden or walking up the pavement."

The company has been unavailable for comment.
