Two people have been injured after a tree crashed through the roof of a bus in Balcombe.

10 people were on board the rail replacement service when the tree fell, smashing the upper deck windscreen and damaging the bus's exterior.

Emergency services were called this morning to Balcombe Station to reports of two people with minor injuries.

Uninjured passengers were moved to an alternate bus and taken to Three Bridges station to continue their journey.

We have had senior management on site to help and assist those who were on board and we sent another bus to help passengers continue their journey. An investigation is underway.
