Two buses collided at the bus station in King's Lynn - two people suffered minor injuries.

Emergency services were called to King's Lynn bus station at around 8.45am after one bus was believed to have reversed into another.

Two patients were treated on the scene.

Georgia Dye, 16, was a passenger on one of the buses involved and was on her way to Springwood High School in King's Lynn with her friends.

She said: 'We were going to school and my friends and I were all in the back.

'One bus reversed while our bus was leaving and collided with us.'

Miss Dye said her wrist was injured in the accident and her friend had some cuts.

She added: 'It was one of those split second things you couldn't do anything about.

'The main concern for all of us was making sure our friend, who had some cuts, was okay.'

Miss Dye, of Tilney St Lawrence, said they were a 'bit shaken up' but the incident was 'handled really well'.

'They got all the medical people on board really quickly, which was really helpful.'

She added the single decker Stagecoach bus was mainly filled with school pupils but there was also one of their teachers on board as well as a doctor and a nurse.
