It wasn't London Bridge that was falling down in England's capital city on Friday night, instead the top of a double decker bus.

Twenty-six people were  injured when the bus crashed into a railway bridge in London.

Debris was scattered everywhere with the back of the bus being completely ripped off.

Three people who were trapped on the top deck had to be freed and five were taken to hospital after the pre-dawn collision in Tottenham, North London.

Police said they were investigating the crash and that none of the injured was in a life-threatening condition.

Transport for London (TfL) said the bus had been privately hired, and was not operated by TfL but a spokesman was unable to comment on media reports that the bus was being operated by an events and entertainment company.
