Two Polish women are being hailed as heroes after taking the wheel of a bus when the driver had passed out.

In scenes caught by CCTV cameras,  the bus driver fell prostrate from his seat on the bus in Kiezmark, west of Gdansk.

The pair then took control of the bus and brought it to a safe stop.

A spokesperson for bus company PKS Gdansk said the women probably saved the lives of the 20 people on board.

No one was injured in the incident, which was captured on CCTV cameras on the vehicle, although the bus driver was taken to hospital for tests.
