One resident, named Zayd, said: “I was shocked to see the extent of the damage and it is a miracle nobody was hurt given the fact it was so close to a petrol station.

“Thank God nothing caught fire.”

Another said: “I passed it shortly after. I just can’t see how it’s even possible that the bus would even be at that angle to be able to do that.

“Hope no one is seriously injured, it will be nothing short of a miracle.”

“Oh wow, that roundabout has always been dodge,” remarked another local.

A London Ambulance Service (LAS) spokesperson said ambulance crews and incident response officers were rushed to the crash.

“We assessed seven people at the scene, but they were discharged and not taken to hospital,” they added.
