The incident happened in the early hours of Saturday morning. None of the injuries are said to be life-threatening.

Emergency services were called to St Loy’s Road just after 4am, treating victims on the scene.

The London Fire Brigade freed three people who were trapped on the top deck.

A LFB spokesperson said:

“Two fire engines, a fire rescue unit and 15 firefighters were called to a collision involving a bus and a railway bridge on St Loy’s Road in Tottenham early this morning.

“Crews helped release three people who were trapped on the upper deck of a double-decker bus. Five passengers were taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service and 21 people were treated at the scene.

“The Brigade was called at 4.05am and the incident was over at 5.44am.”

The bus appears to be used by a party company Vault London, which hires out buses for private events. No-one from Vault London was available to comment.

Network Rail has been called to the scene.
