07:29 pm - Minor excitement
This bus crashed just outside my college today. The BBC report says there was looting but it all looked calm to me. Luckily no injuries as far as I could tell. I looked out at about 15:10, from a taller building just above those windows you can see in the background of the 2nd pic. My students were fascinated by the emergency services, the general speed and efficiency of the response was really quite impressive.

(BBC says 3 injuries, so I must have missed that. It didn't look like a nasty crash, just a big bump)

No seat belts on a bus, and people might have been standing, so can understand why even a small bump could lead to injuries.

Yes, absolutely, it could have been awful. I meant that the atmosphere was relaxed and I couldn't see anyone in distress. It seems the driver went to hospital with chest pains and a couple of passengers were given treatment at site, so very lucky all round. The crash itself was quite impressive though, the bus was half-inside the shop.
