Seventeen people - including seven schoolchildren - were injured after a bus crashed into a house in Cumbria.

The Stagecoach bus had hit a car before it ploughed into the house, which was occupied at the time, although no-one inside was hurt, police said.

Investigations have begun into the cause of the crash, on the A685 at Tebay, at about 17:00 BST on Tuesday.

None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, although nine people were taken to hospital.

Structural engineers are examining the property.

Drivers have been urged to avoid the area if possible.
