A village bus shelter in Thrupp, near Stroud has been transformed into a colourful and cosy sitting room. The bus shelter has been fitted with a bookshelf of poetry, an armchair and decorated with picture frames and other ornaments, all made from recycled materials.

Whilst technically a form of vandalism, it has been well received by locals who have praised the mystery interior designer for bringing joy to a usually mundane and grey bus shelter.
