Replacement Bus Gavin Williamson was greeted with a round of applause at Mithering on the Trent, only to realise the delayed passengers were only being sarcastic.
The morose vehicle told us, 'There I was going for a nice little run out, I mean it has been a while since I have left the depot, and I thought the passengers were very pleased to see me there. I mean, Doug and I needn't put ourselves out for noting in the way of thanks'.
'I mean,' Gavin continued, 'people wanted a train, but I can still get them to where they are needed. I suppose that I now know how David Tennant's understudies feel'.
