A bus spun out of control and drove into an Upminster resident’s garden on Front Lane after a sudden flurry of snow.
Samuel Fisher, 22 from Cranham was on the bus behind the 248 heading to Romford Market when it spun out of control into a resident’s garden, this afternoon (Tuesday, February 26).
He told the Recorder: “The driver came on to the bus and said that there had been an incident up ahead.
“It was definitely due to the snow, all of the buses behind were stuck because of the narrow road.”
Passengers, including Samuel left the trapped buses to continue their journey on foot.
Amber warnings of snow were issued by the Met Office for north east, central and south eastern England for today as freezing weather sweeping in from Russia means that this is the coldest February for five years.
