Muppet row at scene of bus crash

A man was told to hop it by police when he tried to take a picture of Kermit the frog at the scene of a bus crash.

He was frogmarched from the scene after a double decker crashed into a bridge on St George’s Quay in Lancaster, Lancashire, ripping off its roof.

The man tried to place Kermit next to the stricken bus so he could take a photo, but was warned off by a policeman. The bus crashed into a footbridge near Lancaster Bus Station at around 11.30am on Tuesday.

There were no passengers on board and nobody was hurt. A spokesman for bus operators Stagecoach said the bridge was not on a planned bus route and an investigation was taking place.

There's a gallery of photos showing the bus crash site here.
