Traffic police are appealing for witnesses after an elderly woman was struck by a bus in Manchester city centre.

It happened at around 6.50pm on Friday 10 January 2014 when the double decker First bus collided with an 82-year-old woman as it turned onto Lever Street from Piccadilly.

The woman, from Stockport, received what were initially thought to be minor injuries and was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary. However, the injuries are now thought to be more serious.

She suffered a broken ankle, a broken wrist, a possible neck injury and a small bleed to the brain.
