Bus company Stagecoach says it is ‘not unknown’ for drivers to keep buses outside their own house – after pictures emerged of a single-decker on a Northampton driveway.

A photograph of the vehicle seemingly stationary on a private drive on Gloucester Avenue, Delapre, has been circulating on Facebook and Twitter today.

A stagecoach spokesperson said: “We are currently investigating why this bus has pulled onto someone’s driveway.

“It is not unknown for bus drivers to park buses on their own drive overnight however this is not the case in an urban area like Northampton.”

A bus passenger, who has contacted the Chron to say she was on nearby bus at the time of the incident, said it pulled into the driveway to let another bus through.

The passenger said: “The bus pulled into the driveway because both buses drove head on to each other and there were cars parked on one side of the road so they both couldn’t fit so he went onto the drive to let the bus that I was on drive through.”
