Everybody off, please!

An unexploded World War II bomb has been discovered on a battered old bus in East Yorkshire on the route between Hull and Leeds.

Passengers on the X62(c) bus, which has been in service since 1941, were evacuated from the vehicle at Goole, whilst the suspect 1000lb device was made safe by blowing it up.

Local residents spoke of hearing a large bang, similar to the kind of sound a 1000lb bomb makes when it explodes on a bus.

No-one was hurt in the blast, and after a fifteen minute break, which doubled as a toilet stop, the bus was able to continue its journey to West Yorkshire.

Gladys Treacle, a regular passenger on the bus, said:

"There's allus summat to cause a delay. If it int traffic, it's the weather. If it int the weather, it's a bomb."
