ARRIVA North East is appealing to the people of Northumberland to let their imagination run wild by re-designing a bus from top to bottom.

Residents are being invited to think of a bus as a blank canvas and consider how it can be transformed into a work of art.

The winning design will then be brought to life on a real Arriva vehicle.

Managing Director Nigel Featham said: “We want people from Northumberland to come up with some really creative ideas for our Art Bus.

“The design could reflect your local area, or be completely abstract — it’s entirely up to you. “
