To be attributed to a London Ambulance Service spokesperson:
We were called just before 9:35am to reports of a road traffic incident involving a bus on Tower Bridge Road, SE1.
We sent six ambulances, a fast response car, a medical team, a motorcycle responder and two duty managers to the scene. The first of our crews arrived within three minutes of the original call.
Sadly, one female patient has been confirmed dead at the scene.
Our crews assessed and treated 18 patients on the scene. Five patients with minor injuries were taken to hospital. A further four patients with more serious injuries were also taken to hospital.
