Reading bus drivers take to the kitchen to celebrate black history month with some exotic cusine

A little spice on the canteen menu with foods from Africa and the Caribbean

They're more used to negotiating their way through the traffic in Reading, but this month some of the town's bus drivers have been swapping their uniforms for aprons.

They've taken over the kitchen at the works canteen to serve up dishes from different parts of the world. It's all to celebrate Black History Month. Penny Silvester went along to see how well the food has been going down.

The interviewees are bus driver Tricia James, Pablo Stevens - bus driver and Sierra Leonean chef; Randy Bancroft - Caribbean chef, and Shelley Townsend - bus driver.
