A British bus driver has shocked passengers by reading a book - while driving.

The unnamed driver was so engrossed that he was unable even to notice a passenger was filming him.

A concerned bus rider told The Sun: "The guy was in a world of his own, totally absorbed in his book. There were a lot of passengers on the bus but it didn't bother him at all."

He added, "It's not as if he was on a quite country road. He was driving down one of the busiest roads in Brum [Birmingham] while immersed in a novel."

The book worm driver is now facing discipline.

The book's name was not known at the time of writing.
