Nothing says love like a no. 40

In a grand romantic gesture, National Express West Midlands bus driver Ian Holden picked up his girlfriend, Penny, in a specially signposted bus on Valentine’s day.

Penny, who has been with Ian for five years, was waiting at her bus stop in Stone Cross to go to work when the bus turned up emblazoned with the words "X Ian and Penny X". Driver Ian also brought along flowers and chocolates. "He is very romantic," smiled Penny, who lives with Ian in Wednesbury. "I didn't know anything about this - it was a lovely surprise."
