Guest post from Bradley Roper, aged 12.
The day after Kayne and I appeared in the BBC1 programme, Racing with the Hamiltons, I was a bit late for school so my Nan said, “Let’s catch the bus.”
The first Bus Driver wouldn’t let us on and wagged his finger at us. We are used to this and I had discussed my experience of bus drivers’ attitudes with Nic Hamilton on the TV programme the night before.
My Nan stormed away with steam coming out of her ears. Then a bus hooted behind and pulled up beside us. The bus was ‘out of service’ and the Bus Driver called out to us: “Where are you going?”
I said, “To school.”
He said, “OK, I’ll drop you off – I am going to change your opinion of bus drivers.”
Although the bus stop is near the school, he drove right down to literally outside the school gates – he had obviously seen the programme!!
