“One person was thrown through the window on one of the buses and it looked like people on the pavement were hit.
“The sounds were horrific – you could hear the screaming.
“There were children being comforted on the pavement as some had been out trick or treating on the road.
Dozens of police, firefighters and ambulance crews rushed to the scene after the horror just after 10 PM.
Road closures are currently in place on Sevenoaks Road with drivers being urged to find alternative routes.
The London Ambulance Service confirmed they had now left the scene with the wounded taken to hospital.
