M6 bus passengers forced to sit in police cordon

Armed police have swooped on a coach on the M6 Toll motorway in the West Midlands.

The 48 passengers on the Megabus Preston to London service were led off the coach and forced to sit apart in a cordon on the opposite carriageway while surrounded by officers.

Sniffer dogs and forensic officers were also brought in to aid the search, as officers in forensic suits and others in military fatigues checked the area.

The BBC's Ben Godfrey reports.
