Axminster man's property hit by bus - for third time
YOU wait ages for a bus and then three come along at once.
YOU wait ages for a bus and then three come along at once. But one disgruntled Axminster man wishes no buses passed his way - after his property was hit by a double-decker for the third time.
Last week the Herald reported how Nigel Collings, of KC Joinery, had his guttering damaged on separate occasions by a lorry and two buses.
And as the paper went to press on Wednesday, February 24, Mr Collings rang the Herald to say his building had been hit yet again.
He said: "I feel fed up. They should pay more attention to how they drive. I'm very angry and annoyed.

The bus involved is the Service 31, Weymouth to Axminster, operated by First Hampshire and Dorset.
