Whilst on my way into town yesterday I saw a bus, one of the hybrid gas types, on the Newington Causeway end of Southwark Bridge Road with the rear burnt out. It was blocking Southwark Bridge Road for a while. I wonder if anyone had heard or seen anything about it?

I suppose no one heard anything!

Oh well. I was just curious ;->

Looks like there was another bus fire on Newington Causeway last night:

2nd in two weeks and no mention on the news. It's quite interesting as I'd say a bus fire is news...

Surely these are different types of bus?

Unlike when the Mercedes "bendy buses" had a problem in 2005 and it was only after the 3rd or 4th was burned out that they investigated properly and found the design fault!
