Workers prepare to move a van that ended up on top of railings after crashing in Portsmouth.

Witnesses say the accident happened as the blue Volkswagen went through the traffic lights at the junction of Farlington Avenue and Havant Road, in Cosham, and collided with a Stagecoach bus heading east towards the Eastern Road junction.

The van is said to have then mounted the pavement and hit a fence, seriously damaging its front end.

Tony Hoskins, from Havant, was on the school run when he saw the accident.

He said: ‘It’s usually very busy with children walking to school. It’s lucky no one was badly injured.

‘The front of the van was seriously damaged due to the impact with the heavy duty steel fencing that surrounds the waterboard property that runs along the side of the junction.’

The bus was not seriously damaged in the shunt.

Police said no-one was hurt but would not confirm whether anyone was arrested after the accident at 7.15pm on Thursday morning.
