Coach drives into scaffolding in Beccles town centre

There were traffic problems in Beccles town centre this lunchtime after a coach drove into some scaffolding.

The Alfa coach drove into scaffolding outside Beccles Books, in Exchange Square, when it was pulling into a layby.

Two windows in the coach were smashed but no-one was injured.

Three fire crews, police and ambulance were all called at about 12.30pm, with the town's central roads Blyburgate and Newgate closed to traffic at Exchange Square, causing long tailbacks.

Beccles crew manager Gareth Hadridge said that three Fire and Rescue crews attended in case there was a damage of the scaffolding falling down. However only a pole was bent and it was made safe by workers who were also called.

The roads were opened up again at around 1.45pm.
