Staff at Stagecoach South West’s Torquay depot arranged a surprise for five-year-old Frazer Wilton.

Frazer – who was diagnosed with Late Infantile Battens disease in February – has always shown a love for buses since an early age.

Along with his auntie Bethany, mum Amy and brother Alfie, he was invited to Paignton bus station where Stagecoach had arranged for one of the Golden Hop animal character open top buses to be at Frazer’s disposal for the day. They also changed the destination board to read ‘Frazer’s bus’.
