The passengers departed the bus and the service was cancelled for that evening.

A spokesperson for Vectare said: “All of our drivers are trained to the highest standards, however even with this provision in place, occasional incidents will occur.

“Nobody was injured in either incident, and our engineering team are already completing repairs to the vehicles, so that they can return to service.

“Travel by bus is statistically 10 times safer than travel by car, because most bus RTCs are minor incidents like this where nobody is injured and only a small amount of vehicle damage is caused.”
