Dozens injured in Swedish bus crash

At least 25 people, mostly schoolchildren, have been injured in central Sweden after a bus crashed.

Rescue services spokesman Peter Nystedt said the vehicle carrying 60 passengers was involved in the accident on a motorway south of Sveg, a small town 260 miles north-west of the capital Stockholm.

The bus was en route to a ski resort on Sunday morning, according to local media.

Pictures showed the bus lying on its side in a ditch beside the road.

The cause of the accident was not known but the road was reportedly icy when the accident occurred at about 7am local time.
