Mobile phone conversations overhead on the top deck of the 14:20 bus from Reigate:
“I’ve got to go. I’ve got to ring grandpa to tell him dad’s been sent down.”
“Grandpa, dad’s been sent to prison”
Minutes later, after the bus had pulled into the bus stop layby:
BANG! A lorry, overtaking the bus, clips the side of the bus, scattering the wing mirror and various bits of plastic. The lorry stops and the driver exchanges details with the bus driver.
