Police, ambulance and fire crews are on the scene of a bus crash in Kennington Road in which a number of people have been injured, a police sergeant at the scene has confirmed.
Emergency crews were using a cherry picker to gain access to the back of the bus.
When asked how many people had been hurt, a police sergeant said "a lot". It is not known if anyone has died.
The front of the bus - a number 59 heading to King's Cross - was crumpled against a tree near the Ship pub on Kennington Road.
Fire crews used ladders to remove people and seats from the top of the back of the bus. One onlooker said the driver was trapped inside.
