Stopping at traffic lights? It beggars belief.

A coach company have been warned regarding false advertising when passenger Massimo Totti took the company to court.

Totti visiting from his native Italy boarded one of the coaches on Bishopsgate opposite Liverpool St station to take the journey to Stansted. Totti however became angry when the coach stopped on a number of occasions and therefore was in breach of advertising. Totti said that 'the coach was not in fact non stop but actually halted at traffic lights along with 3 notable periods of congestion.

Spokesperson for the coach company, Helen Thompson said 'she was stunned by the complaint and that the passenger had taken Non Stop in the literal sense. In all my years as spokesperson, I am for once utterly lost for words that this complaint has ended up in a court case. Its madness gone mad'.

Totti is suing the firm for damages in excess of 1.4 million euros as he cites that his human rights were infringed as a result of the journey and now, has difficulty sleeping and concentrating.

New Mayor of London, Boris Johnson weighed in by saying 'Congestion in London is an issue and the actions by this coach company do not help. Stopping at traffic lights? It beggars belief'.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
