Apparently applies to both the Archbishop of Canterbury and any large vehicle that happens by...
Historical building came face-to-face with reckless bus earlier today. London SE1 has the full story:
Lambeth Palace Road was closed to traffic in both directions whilst fire crews and police dealt with the crash.
The bus is a single-deck Mercedes Citaro on route 507 between Waterloo and Victoria. It is operated by Go-Ahead London.
UPDATE: There’s an extraordinary update to this story by someone who was on the bus who added their experience in our comments section. Here’s what Stan had to say:
I was on the bus when the accident happened. This was the most terrible experience in my life. The driver lost control and smashed into a wall and then a lamp post. Most of the passengers had to be taken to hospital for treatment. I am feeling fine at the moment but still in shock and with headache. I hope the drivers is well as I’ve heard from the paramedics he might have had a cardiac arrest.
We hope he’s OK, and the driver too.
Me too. I see the bus was a Mercedes, which is German. The Pope is German too... Too tenuous for a conspiracy theory?
