Emergency services, including London’s Air Ambulance, were called to the scene at around 1.30pm today.

The woman, believed to be in her 60s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A nearby shop worker said she saw the woman being given CPR at the scene.

“We didn’t see the crash but we saw the bus and the window was cracked,” she said.

“I couldn’t leave the shop but I saw them trying to give CPR. Apparently there was a lot of blood.”

Enquiries into the circumstances of her death continue and a cordon currently remains in place.

Traffic is heavy around the area. Buses serving the Stratford area are on diversion, with the road closed westbound at Tramway Avenue.
