Redfellow Hovel is convenient for the 43 and 134 London bus routes.
These services are run out of Metroline’s Holloway garage. Recently, new buses began to arrive on these routes. These bear the numbers VW1244 to VW1288 (V, presumably, for the Volvo chassis and W for Wrightbus, the maker). They come with innovative arm-rests, jazzy internals and nifty air-conditioning.
But they come with something else: a prevalent smell of incontinence.
