A bus has ploughed through a wall and crashed into a house in Leeds.

The single-decker hit the property on Smeaton Approach near Cross Gates at about 07:10 BST.

A resident of the house, who did not want to be named, said she was "woken up by a massive bang" as the bus hit.

The bus demolished the front wall of the property and badly damaged a garage but West Yorkshire Police said there were no injuries. It was later removed from the scene.
