Naked National Express coach passenger in Swansea ended up in driver's seat
A BUS station ranger said the naked man led away from a National Express coach in Swansea ended up in the driver's seat, pressing lots of buttons.
The passenger's alarming behaviour attracted the attention of ranger Stuart Anderson, and then police.
Mr Anderson said he was alerted to the 51-year-old's actions by the driver of the Heathrow Airport to Swansea service.
"He would not leave, and when I asked him why, he would not give me an answer, only speak nonsense and swearing," said Mr Anderson.

He said the man then took his shirt off and acted in an aggressive manner when he told him he would have to call police.
Mr Anderson said the man's erratic behaviour continued as police made their way to the drop-off and pick-up point by Debenhams.
"By this time, he had stripped completely naked, began throwing newspaper and luggage out of the coach, eventually sitting at the driver's seat," said Mr Anderson.
"He then began pressing all the buttons, activated the windscreen wipers and the horn."
He said several police officers attended to provide support to two female colleagues who were first on the scene.
The man, of Llanelli, was arrested under the Mental Health Act and taken to hospital following Wednesday afternoon's incident.
It is not clear what caused the man to act in the way he did.
Studies have shown that one in four people experience a mental health issue in any one year.
A spokeswoman for the charity Mind Cymru said it could not comment on the coach incident, but pointed out that people with mental health issues were five times more likely to be a victim of crime than a perpetrator.
