Ancient vehicles? Have you looked at what Arriva has to offer? Stephensons has the best/most modern fleet in Southend! Yes they may have a couple of old deckers but its much better than what Arriva has.

I hope he didn't let the passengers out, its against health & safety rules to allow passengers to depart anywhere but an actual stop.

Having said that if he did, then they deserved to be criticized for refusing to let the passengers off & putting health and safety over common sense.
