The spokesman stated: “His car had collided with the bus shelter. Highways were called to clear up debris (from bricks) in the road and the damage sounds significant.

“He has not been charged at present.”

The litter bin next to the shelter was also caught up in the collision.

Local residents commenting on the news on Facebook were just relieved that it was not later in the day when school children could have been waiting for the bus.
