A VINTAGE Scarborough bus has been making an impression at the Lord Mayor’s Show in London.

The 82-year-old Leyland Tiger bus was painstakingly restored by a group of Scarborough apprentices.

Crowns gathered to watch the bus make its way through the streets.

Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “It’s been a great day - absolutely brilliant.

“We’ve just been past the Lord Mayor’s grandstand and he raised his hat to us as we went past.

“It’s great for Scarborough, great for the coast and great for Yorkshire.”
