Have your say

A child was taken to hospital with a neck injury after a coach collided with a building at Woburn Safari Park.

The vehicle was carrying around 45 children, aged six and seven years old, when it struck a low-rise building yesterday.

Ambulance crews were called to the scene at 3.20pm. The park’s medical staff treated the children on site including a girl suffering with a neck injury and a boy with a cut to the head.

Two ambulances, a rapid response car and two paramedic officers were dispatched to their aid.

Paramedic officer, Geri Arthur, said: “When we first arrived, a coach window was smashed and the children were crying.

“Both have been conveyed to Milton Keynes Hospital and we’ve managed to calm the children down.”
