Pensioner Alfred Throop steers out of control bus to safety after driver passes out in Leicester
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."
Meanwhile, the picture above shows the scene yesterday after a bus carrying college students became stranded in floodwater.
The frightened students ended up wading through the water and carrying their friends to safety in the dark on Thursday night.
