Bus blowout en route to Kelso

A McEWANS bus suffered a blowout whilst travelling down Weensland Road to Kelso on Friday, resulting in a delayed journey and a dented car.

Driver Donald Cameron told the Hawick News: “The bus suffered a back wheel blowout and a section of the tyre from the outside at the back came adrift, unfortunately causing a bump in a parked car. It made everyone a bit late, but we arranged for them to be picked up and taken home.”

The coach company also arranged for the car to be repaired.
