Local delivery Bus!
Passengers on the Glasgow to Wishaw Coakley bus service were very surprised when their driver made a detour to deliver a chest of drawers and a cooker to a friend in Motherwell. The passengers on the bus had noticed the furniture tied-up in the space normally reserved for prams and buggies and thought it was a bit strange but were later astounded when the driver actually diverted the route to an address in Motherwell for his home delivery! The director of Coakley buses apologised for the diversion and confirmed that they had used an interpreter to speak to the Polish driver and further had now been given a warning and lost his bonus as a result of the incident. Aparently the driver was unaware that he was not allowed to deliver furniture on his route.
