BRITAIN’S FIRST “POO bus” was unveiled to the public today in Bristol.

The bus runs on human and household waste and goes into regular service later this month.

Eco-friendly

Members of the public got their first showing of the eco-friendly bus, which will be powered on waste from more than 32,000 households.

The bus will service a 15-mile route four times a day from 25 March.

The bus has some interesting artwork along the side of the bus, depicting passengers sitting on the toilet.
