One crew from Patchway fire station attended the incident.

Firefighters made the scene safe and a structural engineer confirmed there was no damage to the bridge.

Police were in attendance to help with the road closure whilst the incident was cleared.

The bus was operated by Berkeley-based Applegates Coaches, who have been approached for comment.
