Wedding guests injured as bus topples over

A double-decker bus carrying wedding guests has overturned into a field just outside Lisburn in Northern Ireland.

The accident happened on the Ballynahinch Road on Saturday and an investigation is under way.

The bus was carrying 60 people. Fourteen were taken to hospital with mostly minor injuries.

Ruth Green was a passenger on the bus which was taking guests from the church service to the wedding reception when the crash happened.

"We were going along the road and everybody was just chatting away, and then we just veered off the road and into the ditch and then the bus just fell over into the field," she said.
