Bus driver: Jakarta traffic was 'A wild free-for-all'

Driving a bus in Jakarta was an eye-opening experience for London bus driver Josh West. "I found it wild - it was a free-for-all."

Josh left his brand new, high-tech double decker in the garage and travelled to Manila in the Philippines, to drive local people around in a vehicle designed in the 1940s.

For two weeks Josh became a Jeepney driver, with the help of his host, Rogelio Castro.

Now back in London, Josh explains why the trip has left him a profoundly changed man.
