The driver of a school bus which had its roof ripped off when it hit a railway bridge has been charged with drink-driving and dangerous driving.

Gurdeep Sagoo was travelling from Chalfont in Buckinghamshire when the bus hit the bridge in Station Road, Langley, Slough, on 12 May.

The 49-year-old, from Southwell, Middlesex, was bailed to appear before magistrates in Maidenhead on 26 July.

He was suspended by Buckinghamshire County Council pending the case.

Mr Sagoo was the only person on board and was not hurt.
