Busman's Holiday

Echoing that Cliff Richard classic "Summer Holiday", a number of London bus drivers are going to drive from Trafalgar Square to Beijing in honour of the Beijing Olympics.

The trip is to celebrate the cultural links between Beijing and London (which will host the Games in 2012).

The icon of London, a red double-decker bus will be used on the three month journey which starts in June.

Eight drivers will make the trip which will cross Europe, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan before reaching China.
