An elderly man who was knocked down by a bus outside Nottingham’s Victoria Centre yesterday morning is now in a critical condition.

He was rushed to the QMC along with an elderly woman after suffering a serious head injury in the incident outside the busy shopping centre.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “A woman sustained significant but non life-threatening injuries, while a man is currently in a critical condition.

“Both remain in hospital.”

Police closed off part of Lower Parliament Street yesterday lunchtime as they examined the bus involved, causing congestion and delays to bus services.
