A video has emerged showing the amazing moment a crowd lifts a double decker bus to free a trapped unicyclist in east London.

The footage shows dozens of Londoners rushing to the aid of the cyclist after he became trapped under the wheels of the 212 bus in Walthamstow on 28 May.

In the dramatic video people can be heard screaming as they circle around the scene of the accident. They then proceed to work together to push the 12-tonne vehicle off the cyclist, who is now fighting for his life.

One witness at the scene said on Twitter that there were 100 people at the scene trying to rescue the cyclist.

The unicyclist was taking to an east London hospital, according to Scotland Yard.
