The bus crashed in North Hykeham near Lincoln

Parents have been urged by police not to go to the scene where a school bus overturned.

Lincolnshire Police said some minor injuries were reported but none were serious after the crash in Meadow Lane, North Hykeham, near Lincoln, shortly before 8.30am on Thursday.

Officers said “concerned” parents should instead go to St Christopher’s School in Hykeham Road.

The force tweeted: “We are on scene at Meadow Lane, North Hykeham following reports of an overturned school bus. Thankfully there are no serious injuries reported.”

A separate tweet added: “We ask that any parents/guardians understandably concerned do not attend the scene and instead go to St. Christopher’s School on Hykeham Road which will be used as a rendezvous point.”

Meadow Lane was closed while emergency services dealt with the crash before it reopened about an hour later.
