Brighton Bendies - photo special!

With news this week that Konectbus are set to withdraw two of their five former London Mercedes Benz Citaro bendy buses we take a look at a fellow Go Ahead operator in the South East - Brighton & Hove who are making increasing use of the type with up to 22 examples of the type seeing use on service 25 to the University Of Sussex as well as a number of special events in the area including Football Park & Rides on which David Bell photographed a number of the type working on earlier this month...
