20 injured in lorry-bus collision
Around 20 people have been injured after a heavy goods lorry was involved in a crash with a bus carrying schoolchildren.
Emergency services are dealing with the collision which happened just before 8.30am in Lowgill, Kendal, Cumbria.
A spokesman for Cumbria Police said: "The bus was carrying schoolchildren. No children are reported to be seriously injured at this time.
"Local schools have been informed and parents are advised to contact their school if they have any concerns."
A spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust: "At this stage, it is too early for us to confirm the number of casualties, but we believe this to be in the region of 20 people."
The trust sent five ambulances and a response team to the scene with the first crews arriving at 8.41am.
The spokesman added: "We are currently assessing the scene and working closely with other members of the emergency services, with our priority being to ensure people receive the medical help they need as quickly as possible.
"Our primary role is to assess the level and nature of injuries, and ensure that those people most in need are treated first and taken to hospital."
