The roof of a double decker bus which was carrying passengers was ripped off after it went under a low level railway bridge in Cheshire.

Ambulance crews attended but police said no-one was seriously injured in the crash which took place on Silk Road, Macclesfield, at about 1730 GMT.

The road was closed between Buxton Road and Sunderland Street and rail services through the area have been disrupted.

An investigation is under way into why the bus was travelling on the route.
