Looks suspiciously like an ex-London DMS. There's not many of those around nowadays, so it shouldn't be hard to find it.

DMS 326 - I believe it was scrapped.

DMS 326 - I believe it was scrapped.
Ian's Bus Stop confirms this

                           3/86    bought by Pleasurewood Hills Theme park, Suffolk: courtesy bus
                           c94-5    engine failure
                            3/95    sold to Wigley, (Carlton) for scrap

As a contrast, here is a picture of DMS326 whilst in London service
