A double-decker bus has crashed into a house in Coventry.

The bus was in collision with a car before it hit the property on Keresley Road, near to a roundabout, at about 07:00 GMT.

West Midlands Police said there were "only a handful of people on board" and that no-one was seriously injured.

Emergency services have now moved the vehicle from the side of the house and the road has reopened.
