A van driver remains in hospital after colliding with a school bus packed with children.

The crash happened on the A1 southbound between the A606 Empingham Road and the A6121 Tinwell Road, Stamford, at about 2.30pm on Friday.

The van driver had to be cut free from his vehicle after colliding with the bus, which was carrying pupils from Casterton Business and Enterprise College.

An air ambulance landed on the northbound carriageway before taking the driver to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, where he remains in a stable condition.

Two Year 11 pupils who were passengers on the bus were taken to Peterborough City Hospital as a precaution.

Principal of Casterton Business and Enterprise College Victoria Crosher said the school bus was carrying 35 pupils from the school to Ketton. She said school staff immediately travelled to the scene to be with pupils, who were all aged between 11 and 16.
