Two people were hurt when the bus and four other vehicles were involved in the collision3 on Brazen Gate, off Queen s Road, at around 4pm on Friday. The bus came to rest in scaffolding on a building which is being turned into student accommodation.

Two people, a female passenger from the bus and a male driver of one of the cars, were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with minor injuries but were later discharged. The bus driver was not hurt. Motorists faced long tailbacks in the city centre4 as St Stephen s roundabout and Queen s Road were closed, causing major delays.

A spokesman for First Bus, the operator of the service, said an investigation is now under way to find out why the bus left the road during what was a busy time of the day.

And police want to hear from anyone who was on the bus or saw what happened.

Witnesses should contact Pc Richard Syrett at Wymondham roads policing on 101.
