A technician is pitting his wits against bus operator employees from across the country in an engineering contest next week.

Andy Onslow is a body technician for Go-Ahead London bus operator who is to travel to a contest in Bristol where he will compete in a series of tasks as judges seek to discover the best bus engineers around.
