There are delays on Oilmills Road near Pondersbridge this morning, Monday February 1, after a bus left the road.

The Stagecoach bus has partially blocked the carriageway although traffic is passing with care.

An eyewitness said the bus was trying to do a three-point turn when it came off the road and got stuck in the mud.

Andy Campbell, Managing Director, Stagecoach East, said: “The bus was unable to access its normal turning area at Ramsey Mereside, which was blocked by vans.

“The driver attempted to turn round further up the road, but chose an inappropriate area and got stuck during the manoeuvre.

“There were no passengers on board, and the bus was quickly retrieved.”
