Open top 69 stars in Burnley FC's Premier League promotion

Our open top Metrobus 69 returned to service this weekend on SeaFront 12, but on Sunday 4th May the bus was commissioned by Burnley Football Club for a parade through the town. Burnley fans flooded the streets in their thousands to celebrate "the Clarets’" Premier League promotion triumph.

Fans of all ages lined the streets as the Clarets boarded the bus which then crawled its way from the town hall to Turf Moor. 69 featured on local and national TV and scenes from the parade can be viewed by clicking here.
