Stagecoach Manchester passengers Anne Harvey and Lesley Hill have celebrated their six-decade long friendship by taking a trip down memory lane on the bus. The pair, who met in their twenties working at the now demolished Avro aircraft factory in Woodford, have remained best friends ever since, with trips on the bus playing a huge role in their later years.

82-year-old Anne commented on the pair receiving their first concessionary bus pass: “We wanted to get to London! We used to go into Stockport together and get on the first bus we saw. We’d just get off wherever we fancied and have some great adventures.”
