Brylaine accident

On Christmas Eve at around 1000hrs a 4-month old VDL/East Lancs double decker belonging to Wyberton-based bus operator Brylaine Travel was in collision with a small truck on Main Road in the village of Sibsey, Lincolnshire. Four people were injured and were taken to the Pilgrim Hospital, Boston for medical attention. As can be seen from the photo above, the vehicle suffered significant damage.

Ironically, both LEYTR editors were stood at the spot in Sibsey where the accident took place weeks earlier trying to capture a special shot for the 2008 magazine covers.

Bus and coach travel still remains significantly the safest form of travel in the UK.
