In an attempt to alleviate overcrowding, First put people off travelling by organising a hi-vi convention in the middle of the road during peak time.

The new walking bus, coming soon to a street near you. Guaranteed to save money.

Fed up of driving pink buses, the drivers hijack a bus to get to the Kelly Recruitment Centre (green building) and park it on a crossing in the hope that a group of youths will take it away.

Determined not to let an engine failure defeat them, First arranges for a team of spare drivers to push the bus around it's route for the rest of the day.

"Hero driver saves high street"

A bus driver today saved the high street from potential disaster by preventing a number 9 bus from rolling backwards into the nearest illegally parked car.

Explained the driver 'the wooden chock that firstgroup normally use to prevent our buses rolling backwards had been eaten by woodworm at the depot whilst waiting for up to date timetables to be printed. As I left the bus to pick up a pound coin I had seen on the pavement (so that I could give my kids their dinner money out of the disgraceful wages first pay me) I noticed that the bus was moving backwards and grabbed the door stanchion and just held on. It was all in the line of duty and to be honest better than driving a school run'.
After a couple of hours braving the risks of sanctimonious cyclists and 17 year old gits in souped up peugeot 106s on the way to buy clearasil more drivers(whose own buses had been cancelled due to rebranding or breakdowns) arrived.Our driver refused any help, saying 'its a marshall,its built out of old coke cans,cereal packets and carpet offcuts so its quite light really'
A new wooden chock was later found and the bus was last seen being stripped of valuables by the local pikeys.
Our unnamed driver then left to complete the remaining 19 hours of his shift.
