it depends on how many people were in it.
If it was a routemaster the weights are here...........

7 Tons---14cwt....Unladen

12Tons---6 cwt.....Laden
The only buses that weigh anything near that are tri-axles, of which there aren't very many in this country so I doubt it was one of those. In any case, unladen they only weigh twelve tons, although full (they carry 107 passengers on average) it would weigh as much as twenty two tons.
