A man assaulted two British Transport Police officers yesterday evening in East Ham while they were trying to help the victims of a head-on collision. 

Emergency services, including the London Ambulance Service, London Fire Brigade and British Transport Police, were called to the scene of a crash in Barking Road involving a bus and a car at around 5.35pm. 

The bus driver was one of 11 people injured in the collision. 

A cordon was put in place while emergency services worked to help the victims but two men on separate occasions entered the area. 

They were told to leave by police but refused. The first was arrested for obstruction. 

Another assaulted two officers while they were working to aid victims. 

He was detained and arrested on suspicion of Actual Bodily Harm. 

The driver of the bus was one of eight people rushed to hospital to receive treatment.

His condition is not life-threatening and it is not known if any of the others were seriously injured.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We sent an incident response officer, four ambulance crews and a single responder in a car to the scene. We also dispatched our hazardous area response team (HART).

“We treated eleven people at the scene and took eight of them to hospital.”

Enquiries into the circumstances remain ongoing.
