Passengers are being treated for minor injuries after a bus hit the central reservation on the Bow Flyover.

The Ilford-bound bus on route 25 was involved in the incident, which happened at around 12.40pm on the eastbound carriageway.

The exit to the flyover is currently closed while emergency services attend the scene.

Nineteen people were treated for minor injuries, with six taken to each of the Royal London Hospital, Homerton Hospital and Newham Hospital.

One person was checked over at the scene but did not require hospital treatment.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said that the bus was the only vehicle involved and no arrests have been made.

The flyover, which connects Bow Road to Stratford High Street, has only one eastbound lane available.

Bus routes 25, 205, 276, 425 and D8 were on diversion, with drivers advised to expect delays around the area.

Ken Davidson, TfL’s head of bus operations, said that there will be a full investigation into the incident.
