London's air ambulance has been called to Parliament Square after a serious collision involving a bus occurred during rush hour this morning.

Witnesses posted pictures of the emergency responders arriving at the scene, with the helicopter landing on College Green, outside the Houses of Parliament.

A spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service told City A.M.: “We were called at 9.42am to reports of a road traffic collision at Parliament Square SW1.

“We sent a single responder in a car, an incident response officer, an ambulance crew and London’s air ambulance to the scene. The first of our medics was on the scene in under three minutes.

“We treated a woman for head and leg injuries and she was taken to a major trauma centre by ground ambulance – escorted by the doctor from London’s air ambulance.”

The incident is also affecting traffic, as Parliament Square is currently closed southbound. Transport for London warned of knock-on delays.
