Mr Longworth would have had a cursory chat with the driver and then wait for the next "DOI is shite" news story to bury his one. Generally, needn't wait more than a few days.

Has this been swept under the carpet / bus ?

I remember that from the wording on the busses, "W.M Lambden" Isle of Man Roads Services, and there was also the "Douglas Corparation Service" that did the Douglas route, they where never as clean as the Isle of man road serivces buses.

Story I got was - there are two handbrakes on the bus a manual and electronic. There is also an ongoing issue with the till system which needs a hard reboot by disconnecting the battery from a panel outside the bus.

The driver called in the till issue that day and was told to reboot the system. He stepped outside the bus but forgot to set the manual handbrake and upon disconnecting the battery the electronic brake failed and the bus rolled down the hill and crashed.

Is that about right or are there other versions ?

That day...we were all the driver

Driver as in Bus Driver, not as in Computer Driver, would you get out of your car, without putting on the hand brake, if you where on a hill ?

Similar tale to the one I posted on the original thread.
