"On arrival at 2.45pm, crews discovered a lorry and a coach had been involved in the collision.

The bus passengers were assisted by firefighters, and they then assisted the police in clearing the road so a replacement coach could pick up the passengers.

"Crews then returned to their station shortly after 3pm, leaving the scene in the hands of police."
