“Someone told me they got off a bus near Burnden because there was nothing going, and they walked further down to try and get something.

“I looked on the tracker and it showed that there were two number eights at a lay-by near Asda for about 20 minutes, and they were diverted the way the 36 goes.

“I got the train because there were no buses coming down for about 30 minutes.”
