A driver has been freed from his smashed car and a ‘serious collision’ with a bus in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Police have launched an investigation following the incident involving a car and a bus on The Broadway in Ealing yesterday.

Fire crews, paramedics and police officers were all called to the scene at the junction with Hamilton Road in Ealing just before 3am.
