Plucky pensioner Alfred Throop steered an out-of- control bus to safety after the driver passed out.
The 67-year-old told how he grabbed the wheel of the number 58 Arriva bus, in Leicester, fearing it would crash into pedestrians or cars.
The bus stopped after colliding with metal railings.
Alfred said afterwards: "It felt like a scene from James Bond."
