The road would have been very busy at the time of the collision and I believe that a number of people would have seen the incident.

I would urge anyone with information to contact us on the Witness Appeal number 020 8543 5157.

Twin daughters 'could have been killed' by bus crash

Speaking to the Evening Standard a neighbour said:

The driver was in a deep state of shock he was really upset. He said he had turned the ignition off and put the handbrake on and had got off and was talking to another driver when the bus started moving.

My two 14-year-old twin daughters were walking just up to that house that was hit another few moments and they could have been killed - it was a lucky escape.
