London: Two people have been taken to hospital after a London bus had its roof ripped off.

Pictures on Twitter showed a double decker with upper-floor seats and handrails visible in Kingsway in the Holborn area of the capital.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We treated five patients. We treated two patients for facial injuries, they were taken to St Thomas's Hospital.

"We treated two patients for minor injuries, they were not taken to hospital. We treated another patient for a knee injury. This patient was discharged at the scene."

Ethan Meade posted pictures of the damage, writing: "Roof off the 91 bus just ripped off on Kingsway, next to #LSE."

A Scotland Yard spokesman said passengers and a motorist had been hurt, and enquiries were under way to "ascertain the circumstances of the collision".
