Belfast children on bus trip to see Santa involved in city centre road accident

Police are investigating after a car and a bus carrying dozens of parents and young children were involved in a collision in Belfast city centre.

The incident happened on Cromac Street shortly after the bus had just set off on a visit to see Santa at Ark Open Farm on Wednesday.

Several children and parents were left traumatised by the incident but there were no reports  of injuries. 

Emergency services were quickly at the scene.

One parent said: "There was a huge bang and the impact seemed to go right through the bus as a head count was being taken."

"Children were crying and parents panicking as they didn't know what was happening."

The children, carers and parents were from the LORAG nursery in the Lower Ormeau area of south Belfast.
