I was on one of the streetlights last night, and it had a extra mirror near the door side, anyone know why that is the case?

It's to enable a better view of the front of the vehicle. Introduced following a fatal accident.
What accident was that, and will it be in implemented in all buses?
Don't think it was a fatal accident, but a serious one nontheless but possibly the accident where an old woman lost both her legs when she was dragged along the road by a Cobalt and Coast Gemini in Battle Hill back in October.

Not that incident, a oneĀ in Sunderland involving a Streetlite. The Streetlites are the only vehicle type to have the additional mirror fitted.
