I don’t remember a lot of that really, it just sort of happened. There were lots of people running about screaming, it was panic stations. Alison Goodwin “There was lots of debris on the floor and the driver’s cab was inside the gym. There was a woman who had sustained a serious head injury where she hit the bars on her head. I went upstairs to make sure there was no one knocked out or hiding under the seats. “It was weird actually because when you’re in that situation you just do things. When I turned around, there was a building in the bus and I realised this wasn’t safe. I’ve had major trauma training; I was on shift when the Manchester Arena bombing happened. You never want to be, but when you find yourself in a situation like that, you just do what you have to do.” The scene of a crash involving a bus on School Street, Westhoughton, Bolton.
