Bus driver ‘helping woman’

The driver of a double-decker bus that crashed into a hospital in Suffolk was trying to help a woman who had gone into labour, his employer has said.

The bus struck the front of the A & E (accident and emergency) department at Ipswich Hospital yesterday afternoon.

First Eastern Counties said a heavily pregnant woman who had gone into labour had alerted the driver, who then tried to get her as close to the hospital as possible.

No one sustained any injuries in the crash and the A & E department continued operating as normal.
