Riot Police In Hurry Forced To Travel On Schoolbus

Riot Police In Hurry Forced To Travel On Schoolbus

The sight of a group of burly Russian cops turning up for duty might normally be something that inspires respect, but in this case it reduced people who spotted them to laughter.

The incident happened when police officers, who were due to go on duty at a festival in the sixth largest Russian city of Samara in Samara Oblast, discovered that the armoured riot bus had broken down.

To make sure there was no trouble at the festival the officers' presence was urgently needed but the only transport replacement the cash-strapped local police chiefs could come up with was an American-style yellow school bus available for rent from a local hire company.

As a result the bus was fired up and put into action, with the officers climbing on board the vehicle to get to their riot control duty on time.

The image of the tough policemen travelling in the bright yellow children's bus with the word "children" written on the side and the drawings of boys' and girls' faces next to it provoked laughter among other drivers.

And one couple Irina Toulova, 23, and Aleksey Bouhmatov, 24, thought it was so funny that they snapped this video which they later uploaded online.

The bus was even given a police escort which was also captured on the video to make sure the were no traffic problems.
