Two windows were smashed on a bus in Norwich when it crashed into a lorry.

The incident happened at around 10.40am on Monday in Bowers Avenue in Upper Hellesdon, close to the city's ring road.

The bus, operated by First, was pictured with side windows smashed after hitting the lorry, which was travelling in the opposite direction.

The road was much narrower than usual at the time due to cars parked on one side of the road and a lorry on the other side.

He added that it would "take a little while" to recover the bus.
