Edit to add:

According to other reports, when he gets up and walks off he's going into a pub. I suspect a drop might have been taken *before* he was hit too. Hence the, er, relaxed attitude.

I guess it kind of scooped him up than ran him down. Still amazing he got up and walked off.

Why are there no arrests made? Surely the bus company can find out who was driving it (or if it was hijacked) and tell the police before the BBC can get CCTV and write an article

Whereas "under investigation" isn't reassuring?

"The incident is the subject of an ongoing internal investigation as well as an investigation by the police with whom we are working and sharing footage from our on-board CCTV, so it would be inappropriate for us to comment or speculate on this until it has run its course.
"We can assure the public that all our drivers are incredibly professional and trained to the highest standard. Our buses receive regular checks by our award-winning engineering department.
"We send our regrets to those affected, especially the pedestrian injured in the street and hope that he is recovering from his injuries."

I would like to think they know who are driving their own buses.

What more investigation is required, he quite clearly hit someone.

When did I ever say that sweetheart?
