A young boy has suffered critical injuries after a collision with a bus.

It happened outside the Police Station on Wilton Road in the Erdington area of Birmingham at just before 3.10pm on Monday afternoon.

An ambulance was on scene in six minutes and was backed up by a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with the MERIT Trauma doctor on board.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived, the child had been pulled from under the bus.

“The youngster had suffered very serious injuries.

“He was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with the doctor and ambulance crew treating him en-route.
