Joanne Vines and Sammy Ellen spent months refurbishing the bus, which was donated by Stagecoach. This weekend they said they were '˜saddened' by the state that the bus ended up in. However, in a rebuttal statement, the Robert Dolling Trust, which had run the bus since November, said that many of the claims were '˜completely untrue' and that they had offered to clean the bus before it returned to Stagecoach. Here are some of the many Facebook comments sparked by today's story.
