DEPARTING Skegness mayor Steve Kirk got a treat for his year in the role last week when he was given a crash-course in how to drive a bus.

During the unveiling of the new buses on the IC6 Lincoln to Skegness route last month, Coun Kirk let slip to Stagecoach bosses that he would love to get a chance to drive the vehicles one day.

And he got his chance last week when Stagecoach got in touch to give him the opportunity. Coun Kirk is pictured receiving driving instruction from James Carpenter of Stagecoach.
