"In the pouring rain this lady stepped up and left her house to offer her help reversing my double decker until my colleague arrived.

"Without her the service would have came to a halt. With the situation I was only able to offer a wave as a thank you, but just so you know."

It is not known where in Edinburgh the service came to a halt.

Challenging conditions

Tonight a spokeswoman from Lothian Buses said: "On a daily basis our driving team are faced with frequently changing and sometimes challenging operating conditions.

"On this occasion thanks to the assistance of this helpful lady and the professionalism of our driver, we were able to continue to operate this service for our customers along this route.”
