Girl struck by bus in Birmingham

A nine-year-old girl has been taken to hospital after being knocked down by a bus in Birmingham.

The child, who was hit by a single-decker bus near the College Arms, Stratford Road, Hall Green, suffered a head injury.

The girl was taken to Birmingham Children's Hospital after the crash, which happened on Wednesday afternoon.

The road was closed so the emergency services could work safely at the scene, but has since re-opened.
