As you can see behind me, we've got officers from both the Forensic Reconstruction Unit, but also Collision Investigation investigators. They are doing a detailed investigation at the moment.

What I will say is, this was, this involved all emergency services right from the beginning. So we had assistance from our colleagues in the Ambulance, the Fire Service and also Air Ambulance supported us regarding it.
The full flotilla.

Gate-keeping the eyewitnesses? Flushing out the bystanders who can't reconcile what they saw, with what the meeja claims they saw?

Then an anonymous and unattributed statement from Sainsbury's...

Quote:
A Sainsbury's spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that earlier this evening a bus mounted the pavement in Trinity Place, stopping when it made contact with the store.
Cautious to a fault. "Stopping when it made contact with the store"? Odd wording. But perhaps the most accurate account of what actually happened? A drill which saw a bus eased towards the store, one inch at a time? Gently as she goes? But surely captured by CCTV outside the store? Or was it broken, as usual?
