Eye-Witnesses, Izzy Morrow and Emilie Dando-Crosasso, who are both freshers, told The Tab: “We saw the cyclist trapped under the bus just after the accident had happened, he was lying with his face inwards but we didn’t see which part of him was stuck under the front wheel.

“There were people shouting at the bus driver, trying to tell him someone was trapped under.

“People on the bus were using the emergency exits to try and get out to get help.”
