Kingston Maurward College only using single-decker First Buses after 'traumatic' crash
Students from Kingston Maurward College injured in yesterday's bus crash near Poole are recovering well - while no double-decker buses were running to the college today.
Around thirty students were injured when a double-decker First Bus toppled over on the A350 near Lytchett Matravers yesterday morning. Seven students and a trainee driver were taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries.
Dorset Police along with First Buses are carrying out an investigation into the crash, which left the students in shock - but no-one was seriously injured.
One of the students on board the bus, Sherilyn Smith said: "I don't even remember what happened, it was so fast. I felt horrified, and I'm still in shock.

"The bus driver got pushed too far over and we went into a ditch and just fell over."
First Buses were still providing services to the Dorchester college today, but were only using single-decker buses.
Principle of Kingston Maurward College, Clare Davison said: "We would like to say a huge thank you to the emergency services who have been outstanding in their help and support to our students during what has undoubtedly been a very traumatic experience.
"We are also very proud of the way our students reacted during the incident as the police have told me that they remained as calm as possible.
"We are talking to First Buses and working closely with the police to understand how this occurred."
