She was breathing and conscious but had pains in her chest, abdomen and left leg, so was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment.

The driver of the minibus declined medical treatment and there were no passengers onboard at the time.

The road was closed in both directions for more than an hour, as emergency services helped the woman and made the vehicles safe, but it has since reopened.

Stagecoach reported delays of up to 20 minutes on its bus services due to congestion in the area.
