Fourteen people have been injured after two double-decker buses collided in Manchester city centre.
The two vehicles were involved in a smash at the junction of Aytoun Street and Minshull Street, near Manchester Piccadilly station.
Police, ambulances and the fire service rushed to the scene, outside the Holiday Inn hotel, just after 7.30am.
The North West Ambulance Service said two people have been taken to hospital.
It is understood one of the bus doors was jammed shut and some passengers were trapped inside for a brief period.
The fire service said 14 people were being treated at the scene for minor injuries.
Part of the junction has been taped off while an investigation takes place and drivers are being warned of delays.
Stagecoach confirmed two of its buses were involved in the crash, and said the company would carry out its own investigation into the incident.
A Stagecoach spokesperson said:
Two huge recovery trucks have arrived at the scene to removed the damaged buses, as the incident continues to disrupt traffic in the area.
The crash involved two Stagecoach buses, with eyewitnesses claiming that one appeared to have gone directly into the back of the other on Aytoun Street, just yards from Minshull Street Crown Court.
They are still currently crushed together with the windscreen of the second bus shattered.
There were two fire engines which have just left the scene.
