People trapped after bus crashes into shop


A double-decker bus has crashed into the front of a shop on a busy high street in southwest London, with two passengers trapped.

Police were called just before 7am following reports of a bus hitting a building in Lavender Hill, close to Clapham Junction train station.

Photos posted on social media showed the vehicle on the pavement and smashed into the front of the Poggen Pohl Kitchen Design Centre.

Shattered glass could be seen across the ground and paramedics are tending to people on the top deck.
