Boy, four, left on school bus tried to walk home

This post was originally published on this site

A four-year-old boy tried to walk home from a bus depot after being left on his school bus.

John Robertson was travelling home to North Kessock from Munlochy Primary School on the Black Isle last Friday.

But he did not get off at his stop and ended up in the bus in D&E Coaches’ Inverness Longman depot, about four miles and across the A9’s Kessock Bridge from where he lives.

The boy was spotted close to Inverness Caledonian Thistle’s stadium.

The driver involved has been dismissed.

Highland Council and Police Scotland have begun investigations into the incident.

John’s parents, Nikki and John, had thought he was late home because the school bus had been delayed by bad weather.

When he still had not come home, the family said they were told by the bus company that John had been dropped off at home, and then later told that he had not got on the bus.

John’s parents began calling friends, family and police in an effort to find him.

‘Shaken up’

Family and friends also made searches of North Kessock and Munlochy for the youngster.

Mr Robertson told BBC Radio Scotland’s John Beattie programme he was half way through a call to police when officers received information that John had been found and was being taken to a police station.

John told his parents that he had sat on the bus in the depot for a time thinking the bus driver would come back and find him.

Mr Robertson said: “It was a mini bus, so he was able to open the door.

“He decided to get to the Kessock Bridge to get home. He said he crossed a couple of roads. Luckily two teachers found him.

“They said he was shaken up, cold and after some persuasion, because we’ve taught him not to talk to strangers, they managed to get him into their warm car.”

Mr Robertson said he was proud of his son’s actions in cold weather.

‘Very worrying’

A spokeswoman for Highland Council said: “We are extremely concerned about this incident and we are carrying out a full investigation into the circumstances with our contracted school transport provider.

“The incident is also the subject of an ongoing police investigation.”

Earlier Black Isle councillor Gordon Adam told BBC Alba it was a concerning incident.

He said he thought the boy had fallen asleep and woke up at the depot and wasn’t seen by the driver.

“Somehow he got himself to the stadium, which in itself is very worrying as it would have involved crossing a main road,” he added.
