M6 Toll incident: 'Armed police were aiming at us'

Armed police swooped on a coach on the M6 Toll motorway in the West Midlands on Thursday after a member of the public reported suspicious activity.

The scene was later confirmed as safe but passengers had to endure a lengthy ordeal as sniffer dogs and forensic officers checked the area.

In an interview with the BBC, passenger Jenny Lister said it was unclear what was going on at the time and that "everybody was getting pretty scared".
