Brexit bus found dumped in middle of road at famed beauty spot

A bus emblazoned with the logo of the Brexit Party has been found blocking a lay-by in a famed beauty spot.

BBC Wales journalist Sue Charles spotted the turquoise open-topped vehicle while driving through Nant Ddu Lodge in the Brecon Beacons on Saturday night.

She tweeted photos of it, and wrote: ‘Driving through the Brecon Beacons tonight.

‘Was expecting a few by-election posters, but surprised to see what looked like a Brexit Party bus, crashed into a hedge.

‘Got out to check all was ok.

‘No one around, just an abandoned bus, doors open, side-on, blocking a lay-by…’

Sue said she called police to report the bus, and said they were already aware of it.

The discovery was widely shared online, with some remain supporters joking that the bus could serve as a symbol for the UK’s delayed exit from the European Union.

One tweeter called Laura wrote: ‘It’s the perfect analogy for #BrexitBritain. Stuck in a lay-by, not going anywhere.’

Another remainer called Gavin added: ‘Abandoned. Just like all those Brexit promises.’

Sue later shared updates, with the police telling her they didn’t think the bus had been in an accident, or parked in the lay-by as a publicity stunt.

The vehicle has since been towed away.

The Brexit Party was founded by former UKIP leader Nigel Farage and has campaigned for a ‘clean break Brexit,’ which many interpret as being a no-deal exit from the EU.

It proved extremely successful in May’s European Parliament elections, winning 29 of 73 available seats.
