I can't say for sure but I would imagine some of the seats may need to removed to access components under the floor. Doesn't look promising!

If you look on the last bustimes.org map for 33404 this afternoon, it looks like it has done a "jig-a-jig" in that location, perhaps trying to get going ? !!

Unfortunately, the "powers that be" only managed to put a single-decker onto the 365, (probably as a result), - but which looks like bad management to me, - although I shouldn't say such things, as I don't have the insider knowledge. :?:

I know it can't be helped but that is a monumentally bad place to breakdown!

Rescuing it might be interesting if it needs a suspended tow, it might make it too tall for the bridge.

I would hope they realise it need to turn round first, or they could do a normal tow until they clear the bridge. Not many options to turn as both the A44 tyre shop and entrance to Brook Works are locked in the evenings and the A44 on the other side would probably ground.
