I appears from this news story http://www.bedfordshire-news.co.uk/News/Bus-roof-lost-in-bridge-collision-30042012.htm That the bus hit a bridge in the clapham area

Does anyone know what height this bus is?  Stagecoach double-deckers operate under this bridge everyday on Route 50 although they have to keep to the middle of the road in order to do so.

These Scania double deckers are quite tall (I think around 15Ft) as the transmission layout requires a high floor at the back
The low height Stagecoach deckers will be low enough to get through this bridge.

The Scanias would be about a foot taller than the standard low-height Stagecoach spec Olympian (about 14 and a half foot for a Scania, 13 and a half foot for an Olympian), a Volvo Citybus is up at around 15 foot tall for comparison.
