Police said the cause of the incident was being investigated, while the driver of the bus was arrested following the accident. Passengers suggested the bus was speeding downhill at the time, and the driver appeared to be upset after he was told off for being late.

Ten of the injured were in critical condition, while another 20 were seriously wounded, officials said.

A double decker bus has overturned in Hong Kong, leaving at least 19 people dead.

"It was much faster than I normally felt in a bus", he said, sitting by the road.

Eighteen people were killed and 60 others injured when the driver lost control and toppled over. "People fell on top of one another and got tossed around from side to side".

A spokesman from the bus company, The Kowloon Motor Bus company, said HK$80,000 (£7,300) would be paid to each victim's family.

She said: "The goal is to ensure a safe and reliable public transport system. especially for bus services".

The same private bus company, KMB, was involved in Hong Kong's worst traffic crash, when 21 died and 20 were injured in 2003 after a double-decker bus crashed through a guardrail and down a hill after colliding with a truck.
