An Army commander was treated to an open top bus trip around York to mark his promotion.

Lieutenant Colonel Ian Hargreaves was given the surprise bus parade by his troops to mark him leaving his role as Commanding Officer of York-based 2 Signal Regiment at Imphal Barracks.

Members of 2 Signal decorated the bus, as part of a British Army tradition for commanding officers to be driven out of their place of work in style on their final day, with previous COs of 2 Signal having been pushed out on go-karts and armoured vehicles.
