A child has been injured after a bus with six children on board overturned on a Wellington road this morning.

A police spokesman said the bus was travelling on South Makara Road when it flipped on its side as it tried to take a bend.

He said six children were on board when the accident happened just before 9am.

One of the young passengers had a cut lip and was treated by ambulance staff at the scene.

No one was taken to hospital.

The road, which runs between Karori and the coast, was very windy.

The bus had now been righted and the crash site cleared.

Police said there were no other vehicles involved and they were investigating the cause of the accident.
