Injured woman praises ‘heroes’

A passenger injured when a double-decker bus overturned in Devon has described the emergency services as ‘heroes’.

Lisa Grice — trapped on the top deck and rescued through a hole cut in the roof — said paramedics arrived in less than 10 minutes.

‘I know the emergency services are having severe cuts but they’re the true heroes of that day,’ Ms Grice said.

The crash injured 37 people — up to eight of them seriously — when the bus came off the A385 near Totnes.
