Drunken bus thief's 'reckless joyride' through Watford

A man who stole a double-decker bus while under the influence of alcohol has been jailed.

Deepak Malhotra, 35, of Edgware Road, London, drove it through Watford on 7 July 2016, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage.

He was sentenced to 21 months in prison.

Investigating officer PC Mark Logan said: "Malhotra caused thousands of pounds worth of damage as he dangerously drove around the streets of Watford and it is only pure luck that no-one was injured during his reckless joyride."
