A man is in hospital after a bus run over his foot in Ramsbottom.

The 44-year-old man was in Peel Brow when the bus rolled over his foot and drove off, at about 9pm on Thursday.

Police say the man was left with a “serious” injury, and that they believe the bus driver was probably unaware of the incident.

PC Karl Roddie, from the road policing unit, said: "It is highly likely the bus driver was unaware that he ran over the man's foot when he drove off.

“Unfortunately the man cannot remember the exact time and location of where he was hurt but I would ask anyone who may have witnessed anything to contact police."
