Former Newbury Buses Dennis Dart SLF no 75 (HV52WTC) was in trouble at Reading Market Place today.
The stricken vehicle was seen at 12:20 with its front bonnet up and a wheel missing.
Given that the recovery vehicles had already arrived, and the sighting of a previous service, it had been there for over an hour.
Recovery was accomplished when it was towed away at 12:30.
There also appeared to have been a leak of some kind, as granules were laid on the road behind the rear of the bus as it was taken away.
The shots below show recovery in progress, with the convoy (recovery truck, failed bus and support van) taking up all three of the Market Place bus stops.
