The driver of a bus that came off a guided route and careered up a verge in Cambridgeshire has been sacked.

No one was injured in the crash which happened at the beginning of July on the busway at Trumpington when there were no passengers on board.

Today Stagecoach, which runs the service, said an internal investigation had found there were no problems with the vehicle or the guideway itself.

Its managing director said the driver had been found to be at fault and had consequently been sacked.

"The driver didn't follow busway procedures as specified in the guideway handbook and, as a result, no longer works for the company."

– Andy Campbell, Stagecoach East managing director.

The company said it was in discussions with Cambridgeshire County Council to see if any changes to its procedure would help improve safety.

Five people were hurt when another bus crashed at a nearby part of the guideway in February 2016.
