Three people were injured after a bus crashed into a wall in Caldecott.

Emergency services were called to the incident in Main Street at about 7.30am today (Monday).

The road was closed for two hours while the scene was cleared.

It is believed five people were on board the Rutland Flyer service, which is run by Rutland County Council.

The driver and two passengers were treated for minor injuries.

Police are now investigating the cause of the accident.

A police spokesman said: “The driver and two passengers were treated for minor injuries and there was no other vehicle involved.”

The bus ploughed into a wall at the home of retired doctor Andrew Davidson, knocking down two sections of the stonework.

He said: “I heard a bang at about 7.30am and went out to see what had happened. No one was badly injured but people seemed to be in shock.

“A young man who was a member of the Armed Forces and who was passing through the village did a tremendous job by stopping the traffic and helping people.

“I have had the corner of my garden wall knocked down time twice before. We’ve campaigned for a bypass but there isn’t the money.”

No one from the bus company was available to comment.
