A Morecambe bus driver is to go on trial accused of causing serious injury by dangerous driving after a crash involving schoolchildren near Kendal.

Anthony Waner, 44, of Acre Moss Lane, denied the charge when he appeared in court.

The prosecution follows a collision on September 23 on the A685 at Grayrigg when the bus driven by Waner was involved in a crash with a HGV.

Ten people were hurt, including six children who were on their way to school. They were treated at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

The lorry driver, a man from Kendal, was airlifted from the scene with serious head, neck and arm injuries.

Waner was bailed to appear before Carlisle Crown Court on April 21.
