“There was an incident this morning, near Partridge Road, where two cars collided. We understand that this resulted in one of the cars being pushed into the path of our bus, which was travelling in the opposite direction…
“We are also providing support for our excellent driver, who took evasive action and managed to avoid a full front collision. He is uninjured but shaken by the incident. The bus was damaged and has been taken away for repairs.”
