Jolly Trolley...<br />
<br />
A pensioner has paid homage to the humble trolleybus by converting a mobility scooter into one of the vintage vehicles.<br />
<br />
Keith Burbidge, a 77-year-old retired bus driver, decided to mark the 50th anniversary of the last electric bus to travel in his hometown by creating a miniature version of one.<br />
<br />
Keith used an electric buggy as the base for his wacky invention and created the superstructure from discarded aluminium.<br />
<br />
He also installed two seats, one behind the other, and 30 perspex windows. He and wife Carol now drive the 5mph bus around Bournemouth, Dorset.
