A reckless bus driver ignored warnings and smashed through barriers at a level crossing in north London.

Emil Koranteng, 25, tried to zig zag his way over the crossing in Northumberland Park as the barriers were lowering.

He struck one of the booms so hard it ended up on the floor causing nearly £50,000 of damage. The bus was out of service and not carrying any passengers.
