A BUS firm has shown off its latest eco-friendly vehicles – and needs the public’s help to name the last one.

Stagecoach’s new Hayling Island 30 and 31 service was launched at the island’s former bus depot – which is now Hayling Hardware in Elm Grove.

Three of the four new buses have been named after points of historical interest for the Island.

There is the Oliver Leaf, named after the first lifeboat; The Coppists after the World War Two heroes and The Hayling Billy, after the steam train.

There is a competition on now to name the fourth bus with a Kindle up for grabs.

Alongside the new buses was a 1956 Southdowns bus accompanied by ride-on replicas.
