A Windsor bus driver who has served for more than 45 years has had his dedication rewarded.

Len Wright started driving buses in 1962 and despite retiring at 65, continued to drive schools for White Buses for the last eight years on a part-time basis.

The 76-year-old was presented with a glass vase from White Buses proprietor Doug Jeatt and an engraved cup from his colleagues when he retired on December 21.

Mr Wright said: “It was nice of them to present me with the gifts – I didn’t expect any of it. A lot of people come up to me – it’s always nice to be remembered like that. I didn’t want to retire properly at 65 as I wanted to keep active.”
