All aboard the Norwich promotion bus... or not – it broke down earlier today.
Norwich City players were forced to get off the bus – and even tried pushing it – as their promotion parade temporarily came to an unexpected halt.

The team had planned to tour the city on an open-top yellow bus with “We are Premier League” emblazoned on its side, but instead had to complete their journey on a red tourist bus replacement.
The club tweeted a video of two players trying to push the bus with the caption “We may have had some slight bus issues” - they had previously tweeted a video referring to it as a “beauty”.
It is not currently known what caused the mechanical hiccup.
The incident has distant echoes of the film Mike Bassett: England Manager, when the Norwich open-top bus parade – after winning the fictional Mr Clutch Cup – took a wrong turn onto the A11.
