A passenger bus has been left hanging partly over the River Thames after an accident.

The incident at Putney Bridge in south-west London involved a number 424 bus and a car.

The bus driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to a central London hospital as a precaution.

The woman driver of the car was treated by London Ambulance staff for minor injuries. No-one on the bus, travelling from Putney Heath to Fulham, was hurt.

Pictures appeared on Twitter of the bus, which has knocked down part of the bridge, hanging partly over the structure with the rest of the bus on the pavement and its rear in the road.

Putney Bridge has been closed to all vehicles except buses and taxis and there are also other road closures in the area.

Police said that inquiries were continuing into the incident, which happened at around 10.30am today.
