Double Decker Bust

Kathryn Quinn

Astonished cops arrested this trucker in southern China - after discovering he'd secretly converted his lorry into a double decker bus.

Driver Lin Wan had installed a makeshift upper deck to carry migrant workers across the country as they made their way back to their jobs after the Chinese New Year holiday.

But police at a toll booth in Guangxi Zhuang raided the truck after hearing voices coming from the rear.

Inside they found 26 men and women sleeping and sitting on the truck's ramshackle passenger compartment.

They told police they'd paid the trucker for their seats after failing to get train or bus tickets.

China's transport system comes under intense pressure during the new year break as tens of millions of people criss cross the country trying to get home.

"It's a very dangerous way to travel. If there had been the smallest accident they could all have died," said a police spokesman.
