Dinky decker...<br />
<br />
A retired bus driver has taken his passion for buses to the next level - by transforming a broken mobility scooter into a quirky mini yellow bus.<br />
<br />
Keith Burbidge, 75, retired as a coach driver last year but missed the mode of public transport so much he decided to make his own miniature version.<br />
<br />
The father-of-two spent just £40 and six months turning a broken scooter he picked up at auction into a working scale-model of a Yellow Bus, the company that operates in his hometown of Bournemouth, Dorset.<br />
<br />
The one-of-a-kind motor is 4ft tall and 6ft long and can only travel at speeds of about 5mph.
