A bus driver will appear in court after the roof came off a school bus when it hit a Darlington railway bridge.

The crash happened on 22 September in Neasham Road when the double decker was taking about 50 students to the town's Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College.

Durham Police said the bus driver, a 50-year-old man from Stockton, had been summonsed to appear in court.

He will appear at Darlington Magistrates' Court on 10 November for an offence of dangerous driving.

The bus was operated by Stockton-based Compass Royston.

Twelve people were taken to hospital but none of them was seriously injured.
