A bus and a car have collided forcing the bus into the front of an office building in Peterborough City Centre this afternoon, Thursday December 24.

The crash took place in Broadway at around 11.43am and the air ambulance is on the scene alongside two road ambulances, two fire crews and five police cars.

The bus hit the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

A Guide Dogs worker posted on the Peterborough Telegraph Facebook page: “unfortunately straight into reception! All staff out of the area at the time, shaken but fine. Very lucky considering the tea making area has been recently relocated to exact spot where the bus hit, and no one working upstairs.”

A police spokesman said: “The single decker bus also collided with a building.

“Police, fire crews, ambulance and air ambulance are on the scene, at this stage details of any injuries are unclear.

“The road has been cordoned off between Church Walk and Broadway near to the theatre.

“We would advise people to avoid the area until further notice.”

An eye witness told the Peterborough Telegraph that it looked like the front of the office building was being held up by the bus but all office workers were out of the building.

Fire crews released two casualties from the car.
