Two people have been injured in a collision between a car and a bus in Greater Manchester.

Police said a Mercedes collided with an Arriva bus on the A538 Hale Road near the junction with Brooks Drive in Hale Barns, Trafford, at around 09:40 BST.

The driver of the Mercedes was taken to hospital in a serious condition. A bus passenger was also taken for treatment of a suspected broken arm.

The road was closed to allow for an investigation but has since reopened.

The driver of the bus was not injured in the collision.

Police had advised motorists, particularly those heading to Manchester Airport, to avoid the area.

More traffic than normal was expected to use the road across the weekend as the nearby M56 has been closed to allow a bridge to be demolished.
