A bus driver has hung up his driving gloves after 40 years behind the wheel on the streets of Gedling borough.

Robert Smith joined Nottingham City Transport in June 1980 and spent most of his time driving the Sky Blue 45 between Nottingham City, Mapperley and Gedling.

Nottingham City Transport not only praised Robert for his long service but also his efforts during the recent pandemic too.

A spokesman said: “Robert was one of the 170 drivers who worked through the lockdown period on our special timetables.

“His last day with us coincided with the last day of the special timetables before we returned to normal service on June 28.

They added: “We wish him all the best for the future.”
