A double-decker bus has crashed into the front of a shop on a busy high street in southwest London, with two passengers trapped.
Firefighters with cutting gear are trying to free trapped passengers from the top of the bus following the incident in Lavender Hill, close to Clapham Junction train station, just before 7am.
The driver of the route 77 bus has been taken to a south London hospital, while the London Ambulance Service said six people have been treated at the scene.

Resident Brendan Pfahlert said the crash "sounded like a large amount of glass being dropped".
Photos posted on social media showed the vehicle on the pavement and smashed into the front of the Poggen Pohl Kitchen Design Centre.
Shattered glass could be seen across the ground and paramedics are tending to people on the top deck.
