Two ambulances arrived within eight minutes of the call and were backed up by a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a trauma doctor on board.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a boy, of about 11 years, under a bus.  He had suffered multiple serious injuries.
