He was captured balancing a puzzle book on his steering wheel in a picture taken by a pupil on a mobile phone, reports Metro. The employee was also seen filling in the answers with a pen while travelling in early morning traffic, according to the 12-year-old snapper.
"When I saw the photo I was really shocked," said the boy's mother who blew the whistle on the driver. "Not only was he driving, he also had children on the coach and was responsible for their safety. It wasn't ever our intention that the driver should lose his job but we wanted to draw it to the company's attention to make sure it never happened again."
The driver, who has not been identified, was dismissed after Cavendish Liner Coach Company launched an investigation. Cindy Lalani, business manager at Ferndown Upper School, said: "We feel that the bus company took prompt action, which we are very happy with."Post published in: World News
