Two people have been injured in an incident on a bus which was travelling between Norwich and Holt.

The East of England Ambulance Service were called to a bus stop at Marsham at 4.12pm following a incident on a bus and sent an ambulance crew as well as a community first responder.

A woman, believed to be in her 30s, was knocked unconscious after hitting her head but later regained consciousness.

A second ambulance crew was dispatched to treat another patient who had been injured after falling on the bus.

Charles Sanders, managing director of the Holt-based bus company Sanders Coaches, said the incident occurred on the number 44 service.

He said: “All I have been told is that a car pulled out directly in front of the bus, and the driver did an emergency stop and a lady was injured.”

Mr Sanders said it had been a peak service and the bus was “busy” with passengers at the time.

“When anyone is injured we will carry out an investigation from top to bottom to find out what has happened and why,” he added.

It is believed both patients were injured when the bus braked. Police were also in attendance.

A spokesperson for the ambulance service said: “Two patients were assessed at the scene and one was taken to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further care. Their condition is not believed to be life threatening or serious.”
