A bus has ploughed into the front garden of a house in Ladywell.

Police were called at around 6.25am today (August 18) after the 484 bus crashed into a garden wall on Vicars Hill near to the junction of Cliffview Road.

Five passengers were onboard, who escaped unhurt but paramedics from London Ambulance Service attended as a precaution.

Transport for London is investigating the crash.

Lewisham officers (@MPSLewisham) posted on Twitter: "It's fair to say 'bus has driven into a house' is not an everyday call, even for Lewisham!"

Mike Weston, TfL’s director of buses, said: “At around 06:30 this morning a route 484 single deck bus, operated by Abellio, collided with a wall on Vicars Hill near to the junction with Cliffview Road.  

"Emergency services attended the scene.  There will be a full investigation into the incident.”

Lewisham's bus drivers were proven to be the most accident prone earlier this year when a Freedom of Information request revealed more than 100 collisions involving buses in the borough in one month.
