Accident on Mill Bank, Loftus

I’d like to think that this is the remains of the bus we’ve seen hanging backwards over the parapet in previous posts – I certainly hope so for the passengers and driver’s sake!

    I have had a copy of this photo for many years and was told possibly 45 years ago that the conductress died in this accident as the winding handle of the ticket machine penetrated her skull in the impact. I wonder what they are searching for in the water (the man in the bus and the one at the near side)?. Another gentleman at the far side with ropes ready, they certainly were not heavy enough to pull the bus out. This was an Upton Bus services bus of Redcar, not a United bus.
