The driver of a bus which struck a house has been "relieved of driving duties" while an investigation into the accident is carried out.

The single-decker vehicle crashed into the front of the house in Holmer Green, near High Wycombe, on Saturday.

Three passengers were injured, and a man and woman inside the house in Wycombe Road were also hurt.

A spokesman for Carousel Buses said the driver involved had been with them for 16 months and had a good record.
