An elderly woman who was injured after falling on a bus in Preston has died.

The 85-year-old had been travelling on a double-decker bus along Sharoe Green Lane on Wednesday last week, when the bus stopped to give way at a zebra crossing near Booths.

It is thought the woman got up out of her seat but, when the bus set off again, she fell backwards and hit her head on a step at the back of the bus.

She was taken to Royal Preston Hospital, but police said she died during the early hours of Thursday morning.
