A Nottingham city centre shop will remain temporarily closed after a two bus crash which injured a number of people.

Part of Lower Parliament Street was cordoned off by police after the collision on Wednesday, September 9.

Emergency services were at the scene from about 4.10pm, with police lifting the cordon at around 6.30pm.

Nottinghamshire Police closed off a stretch of Parliament Street between Clumber Street and the Pryzm nightclub following the crash.

Onlookers described seeing the two vehicles collide at the road's junction with George Street before one bus went into pillars at the entrance of Argos.

Bus services across the city were also impacted by the crash, with Nottingham City Transport setting up numerous diversions and changes while Parliament Street was blocked.
