EIGHT children were taken to hospital after their school minibus ploughed into a safety barrier near a crossing on a busy main road.
The minibus was returning to Waterhead Academy carrying a woman teacher and seven boys and a girl aged 12-13. The party had been on a visit to the University of Manchester’s Aerospace Open Day and was only a few hundred yards from the 1,258-pupil academy when the accident happened.
The front of the bus was badly damaged after it mounted the pavement
