Raiders of the Lost Arc comes to North London

Post by Fordoholic Nick » Wed Jul 29, 2020 7:04 am

Never a dull moment here in North London.

So, am driving my bus along at 7am this morning heading towards Turnpike Lane and 150m ahead in opposite side of road I see a guy standing in the middle of road in front of a builders flat back lorry with his hands on the windscreen attempting to stop the lorry driving off. Obviously some altercation had occurred and the builders were trying to drive off. Guy then runs to the side and tries to yank open the drivers doors. Builders having none of this and drives off but the guy gives chase and leaps onto the side of the lorry and is dangling as the builder still carries on driving. Guy somehow managed to haul himself up onto the back of the lorry and then is trying to get into the drivers from above as its moving at some speed now. Lorry shoots off up the road past me with this guy standing on the back shouting CALL THE POLICE!!

It was like a scene from Raiders of the Lost Arc :lol: :lol:

Was this chap dressed in feathers and had a mohawk and a crossbow pistol?

Did you go in to Pursuit mode With chasing the builders lorry then overtake and pull in front of the lorry jump out across the bus bonnet ( wearing your mask and rubber gloves saying “ Stop in the name of the Law “

Please note I think that’s Andrew on drums and Rob on Guitar? :lol:

Come to think of it Tom.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mate I was tempted to leap from my bus onto the back of the lorry as it past me but thought not a very professional way to represent Arriva :wave:
