A 15-year-old pretending to be a bus driver stole three separate buses and took dozens of unwitting passengers along for the ride.

The teenager took the first bus in the north-east Dutch town of Apeldoorn and drove it 40 miles down the motorway - where he stole another to drive the return journey.

Police say he stopped several times to pick up passengers along the way and delivered them to their destinations without them becoming suspicious of his youthful looks
