What an absolutely marvellous gesture from Konectbus, in their driver's hour of need. I hope the little lad is OK now & recovering at home with Mum, Dad & the rest of the family. This does show some Companies think & look after their staff!!

To the little lad, his Mum & Dad + family, plus all at Konectbus, have A Happy New Year !!!!

Good news all round: little lad back home and progressing well; GoAhead subsidiary, local management and driver all wearing halos only slightly less bright than those to be seen in traditional seasonal representations of a certain middle-eastern stable. What's not to like?

From BBC News, Norfolk: Father drove his son to hospital in his bus

Quote from: BBC News, Norfolk

Bus driver Ross Cork was dropping passengers off in Norwich when he got a call his son Riley was having a fit.
