A bus driver from Great Yarmouth has become an online sensation after being filmed entertaining passengers with a song while stuck in the snow.

It’s a commuter’s worst nightmare - getting stuck in the snow, unable to get to work.

This was the case for several passengers on a First Bus in Great Yarmouth today (February 28) as they got caught up in traffic for over two and a half hours.

Bus driver, Carl, decided to keep the group entertained with a song.

In a video posted to Facebook by Paul Veness, Carl says: “At First Bus we are committed to getting our passengers to work on time and safely, however today we’ve been stuck for two and a half hours, so what is a bus driver gonna do?”

He proceeds to start singing Let It Snow and the passengers end up joining in with him.

At the end of the song he adds: “Yes! That’s what First Bus is all about.”

The video has currently had more than 24,000 views on Facebook and has been shared over 900 times.
