East Yorkshire spell out their thanks to the NHS.

Hull-based bus company East Yorkshire have spelt out their thanks to medical staff by using their buses to outline the letters ‘NHS’ at their depot.

Drivers and engineers parked the buses at the company’s Anlaby Road garage, which is next to Hull Royal Infirmary, whilst celebrating Thursday’s regular ‘Clap for the NHS’ from an open top bus at the front of the depot.

During lockdown, many NHS staff have been using the buses to get to and from work, and bus company staff wanted to show their appreciation for all medic’s hard work.

Ben Gilligan, East Yorkshire’s Area Director, said: “Since the lockdown, our team have been taking many NHS staff to their vital work at hospitals and healthcare facilities across the region.  We wanted to show our appreciation for their commitment and dedication.”

“We’re advising people to only travel by bus if it’s essential, and we’d encourage people to stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.”

The giant letters were captured by Hull-based Octovision Media’s drone camera, which flew over the depot.
