FIVE year old bus enthusiast David Elston from Bognor Regis enjoyed a day he will never forget with a VIP tour of Chichester bus station.

David, who has autism, was invited by operator Stagecoach after his mother Donna contacted the company explaining her son’s great passion for anything and everything relating to Stagecoach buses.

Staff members Steve Thorpe and Lee Bridle gave the youngster a personal tour of the bus station and garage site to see all the buses, followed by a trip through the bus wash.

At the end of his visit, David was presented with a number of gifts from Stagecoach, including his very own model Stagecoach bus.

Donna said: “We had an amazing time. David had such a great day, he really enjoyed his visit and special bus ride.

“He will always remember today, he has been telling his daddy all about his adventure.”
