Thief jailed after bus ‘joyride’


A thief who stole a bus and went on a 10-minute late night drive around a town has been jailed. Shane Youll caused £2,000 of damage after he crashed the Stagecoach bus into railings in South Tyneside before he was stopped by police. In video released by Northumbria Police, the uninsured 32-year-old from Cotswold Terrace, Stanley, County Durham, was caught on the bus’s on board cameras, calmly manoeuvring the single-decker out of the depot and around roundabouts, occasionally straying across the middle lane of the road.
