Man jailed for 250k 30-mile rampage in stolen bus


A man who took a bus on a 30-mile joyride through West Yorkshire leaving a £250,000 trail of destruction has been jailed.

Shane Oldroyd, 27, of Ossett, stole the single-decker Arriva bus from Wakefield bus station in August because he needed to get home and had no money.

Judge Kerry Macgill told Leeds Crown Court Oldroyd was guilty of "wicked, dangerous and reckless" driving.
