Officers were called to Church Street at just before 2.20pm after a bus collided with a 55-year-old woman.

The woman was taken to hospital with serious head injuries where she remains in a critical condition.

This was a nasty collision that happened at a time of day when other people would have been around.

We would ask anyone who has not yet spoken to us to get in touch with the investigating officers by calling 101.
