Several passengers were injured when a double-decker bus crashed into a hospital.

The top of the bus struck part of a roof structure at the Chesterman Wing at Sheffield's Northern General Hospital at about 22:45 BST on Tuesday.

South Yorkshire Police said some of those on board suffered minor injuries and were treated by hospital staff.

A Stagecoach spokesman said the bus was operating on the Sheffield to Barnsley service 2 route.

The firm said it was working with police to understand the circumstances of the crash.

A spokeswoman for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust said repairs were ongoing and services at that part of the Northern General were unaffected.
