A man has died and his 10 year old son is seriously injured when their car was in collision with a bus.

Emergency services were called to the scene on the A15 at Scampton, shortly after 7pm on Friday September 8 after a black Nissan Qashqai collided with a Stagecoach double decker bus.

The driver of the Nissan, a 44 year-old local man, died. His 10 year-old son was airlifted to hospital in Sheffield where he remains with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
