PASSENGERS on an Enfield bus had to be evacuated and checked over by paramedics following a crash between the double decker they were travelling on and a van carrying scaffolding.
The collision – which rendered the bus windscreen completely smashed – happened just before 1pm today at the junction of Baker Street and Parsonage Lane, as the W8 was heading in the direction of Chase Farm Hospital.
Police and London ambulance service attended the scene but nobody was taken to hospital.
A police spokeswoman said: “Police were called due to severe damage to the bus and also possible passengers injured.
“LAS were present and passengers were checked over but there were no serious injuries and no one was conveyed to hospital.
“No offences alleged or apparent.”
