A DOUBLE -DECKER bus hit a tree at 8.30am this morning (Thursday) - taking part of the roof off.

Fortunately the only passenger on the top deck, a 13-year-old boy, sustained just a cut to his finger.

The accident happened on Green Lane, close to Buxton Community School, with significant damage caused to the upper deck of the bus.

The road was closed to allow part of the roof, still stuck in the tree, to be removed.

Work was also undertaken to clear glass and debris from the carriageway.
