HORNSEA (Web Desk) – A chip shop customer caused a traffic jam which left a bus stranded for 25 minutes.

The 550 East Yorkshire Buses (EYMS) service, which circulates around Hornsea, was stuck behind a vehicle in Whimbrel Avenue in the town and could not get past on the narrow road.

The driver is believed to have gone into Whiteheads fish and chip shop in The Greenway, which lies off the street, and eaten their lunch inside before finally re-emerging nearly half an hour later to move the vehicle, Hull Daily Mail reported.

Claire Robinson, from EYMS, said buses were commonly stuck behind vehicles in narrow roads, though it was not often “chip-related”.
