Bus thief caught at traffic lights

A court has jailed a man who stole a bus and went on a late-night joyride around town.

Onboard cameras caught 32-year-old Shane Youll manoeuvring the single-decker out of a depot in South Tyneside.

The bus mounted kerbs, strayed into the middle of the road, and crashed into railings before police found the joyrider waiting at traffic lights.

The court sentenced Youll, from County Durham, to 10 weeks in jail and banned him from driving for 18 months.
