A Stockton man who crashed a school bus into a Darlington railway bridge has pleaded guilty to dangerous driving.

Trevor Wilson was driving the double decker bus to the Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College when it crashed on Neasham Road on 22 September 2011.

About 50 students were on the bus. Twelve people were taken to hospital but there were no serious injuries.

Mr Wilson pleaded guilty at Darlington Magistrates' Court on Thursday. He will be sentenced on 26 January.

The 51-year-old, of Wellington Walk, changed his plea after previously denying the charge.
