The Routemaster bus is back on the streets of London this morning, for it's first regular service in over 6 years.

Championed by Mayor Boris Johnson, the first of the so-called "Boris buses",  complete with driver and conductor, enters service this morning on route 38 which runs between Victoria station and Hackney.

The last of the Routemasters was withdrawn from regular service in December 2005.
