Tam Lindsay (tambothejambo on twitter) witnessed a spectacular mistake by a bus driver in West Lothian that tore the roof off his double-decker ride.

Out a walk in Fauldhouse and heard a huge collision. Local bus tried to go under railway bridge and took top tier of bus

The error was egregious enough for the driver to be charged, reports the BBC.

No-one was injured and the Lothian Country bus driver was the only occupant of the vehicle at the time. A spokesman for the operator said: "We can confirm one of our vehicles was involved in an incident earlier today in the Fauldhouse area and we are fully assisting Police Scotland with their inquiries."

Adds the BBC:

A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.

Just you wait until the procurator fiscal hears of this!
