A CHILD has been injured in Winchester after a collision with a bus.

Paramedics treated a boy after the collision with a Stagecoach number three bus in the High Street shortly before 2pm.

The injuries did not appear to be life threatening and the boy was conscious and responding to questions from medics.

The incident happened next to the market stalls and blocked the High Street with buses having to be diverted.

The child, thought to be around ten years old and from the Winchester area, was taken by stretcher to an air ambulance that landed on Cathedral Close. He was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital.
