On the wheels of love

Love was in the air today as National Express West Midlands bus driver Ian Holden picked up girlfriend Penny in a specially signposted bus.

Penny, who has been with Ian for five years, was waiting at her bus stop in Stone Cross to go to work when a bus turned up saying, "X Ian and Penny X".

Driver Ian - not content with just the one big romantic gesture - also brought flowers and chocolates.

"He is very romantic," smiled Penny, who lives with Ian in Wednesbury. "I didn't know anything about this - it was a lovely surprise."
