A man has been jailed for four months for stealing a bus after a night out in Nottinghamshire in March.
PC Emma Ashton says,
“Taking the bus home took on a whole new meaning for this individual. Instead of walking or getting a taxi home after his night out he put his own life, and that of others on the road, in danger.
“It had been snowing heavily that evening and, on attending the scene, officers noticed there were footprints leading from the bus to an address in New Hucknall Waye.
“In a great piece of old-fashioned detective work they followed them, found Dowdall there and were able to make an arrest.
