Bus removed from wilderness

A helicopter in the US has removed an abandoned bus — featured in the film Into the Wild — after increasing numbers of tourists got into difficulties visiting it.

The local mayor said it was ‘a big relief’ as an army helicopter lifted the vehicle from a trail outside Denali National Park, Alaska.

Two people have drowned in rivers on their way to or from the bus and many more have needed rescuing.

In 1992, 24-year-old adventurer Chris McCandless inhabited the vehicle before eventually dying of starvation.
