Passengers in Great Yarmouth were in for a treat this week when an open-top bus turned up at their stop.
Ahead of the scheduled services on the Seasider route starting for the summer months, First Great Yarmouth decided to run the bus on other service routes in the town to showcase the service.
Operations manager for First Great Yarmouth Alvin Parker, said: 'Our customers have had a real treat over the last couple of days with our open top bus running on a variety of routes around Great Yarmouth.

'The bus has been prepped with a brand new engine ready to run on a special service along the sea front over the summer months. Before the service starts, we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to enjoy a bird's eye view around other areas of the town especially on days like today with the fabulous sunshine.
'Customers should look out for the open topper over the next couple of weeks and enjoy a ride when it appears on their bus route.'

Launched last year, the Seasider was the first open top service bus in the town for nearly 20 years picked up its first passengers yesterday on the sea front.
The scheduled number 3 bus will be known as the 'Seasider' and is run by First Bus and on an hourly service during the day.
The general manager at Great Yarmouth's bus depot, Chris Speed, said he hoped the bus would get people to explore the resort and town centre.
