The woman was struck by the vehicle on West Mosley Street at the junction with Princess Street, near the town hall, at about 2pm on Thursday.

An onlooker who saw the aftermath of the collision said: “I was standing on the corner of Princess Street and West Mosley Street and the bus was heading towards Deansgate, past the town hall.
“I saw the bus at the traffic lights and a woman who had been hit was on the floor.
“She was being looked after by the paramedics and it looked as though they were waiting for an ambulance. She had a neck brace on and they were carefully moving her out of the road to allow traffic to carry on.
“There was a tailback of buses along Princess Street.
“It looked quite bad, I hope she is OK.”
A GMP spokesman said: “We were called at 2pm to West Mosley Street to reports of a collision involving a bus and a pedestrian. Paramedics and police attended the scene.
“The woman did not appear to be badly injured. She suffered a minor head injury.
“The bus was left blocking the tramline.”
No arrests have been made and the bus driver stopped at the scene.
