Is this the world's smallest bus?

A man from Durham has transformed his Fiat Seicento into a miniature school bus.

Chris Atkinson, a bus driver for Arriva, will travel from Scotland to Cornwall to help raise vital funds for The Special Care Baby Unit at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.

The ‘bus’ is painted Arriva blue, with the matching checkered seats and even has a ‘Sorry Not in Service’ sign for when it’s taking a well-earned rest.

The charity is very close to Chris’s heart, as his son Kieran was born 3 months premature. Staff at the RVI provided lifesaving care to Kieran and he is now a healthy young boy

Greggs is one of the friendliest places to work in the UK, a new study has shown. The chain ranked sixth out of 25,000 companies.

Jobs website Glassdoor, who conducted the survey, said comments it received about the winners included praise for managers, a friendly atmosphere, staff discount, subsidised canteens and different time-off options.

Joe Wiggins, of Glassdoor, said: "When it comes to finding a new job we all have our own priorities, whether it's better pay, career progression or seeking out a certain company culture."

"Retail is the UK's biggest employer, so the atmosphere at work potentially impacts millions of people on a daily basis."

"It's no coincidence that this list is packed with some of the UK's most popular high-street retailers, because clearly camaraderie is easily forged amongst people working on the front line in customer-facing roles"
