A bus driver is in trouble for making inappropriate jokes on a bus service from London to Cardiff

He said through the loudspeaker, "I'm not saying that the people of Bristol are weird, but the last time I came here, a guy introduced me to his wife, his mother, his daughter, his cousin, aunt and niece – and they were all the same woman. "

He also informed the passengers that when they were in the city, they could "buy a banjo, rent a combine or even marry their cousin".

A traveler did not see the funny side and complained to the national carrier Megabus. He said the driver would be disciplined for "totally unacceptable" comments.

But others have supported it online. Bristolian Grahame Dodd said, "It's like a joke. We do the same for the places and people of Swindon and Yeovil. "

Carmel Jonas thought it was "hilarious" and said the driver deserved a raise.

And John Costigan said the guy was trying to inject humor into people's lives.

He added, "It was a light gag. It is the end. "
