Drunk man misses Belfast wedding after passing out in tour bus storage compartment
The unintentional stowaway woke up to find he had hitched a lift from Belfast all the way to Ballycastle
Tourists visiting Northern Ireland had a shock on Saturday, when a banging noise from within the storage compartment of their tour bus, turned out to be a drunk man that had hitched a lift on the vehicle from Belfast all the way to Ballycastle.
Sharing the story to Facebook today, the PSNI explained how the travellers, bus driver and onlookers discovered a shock, when the side storage panel of the bus was opened to reveal a “stowaway” inside.
“This guy had went out for a ‘night on the town’ with his friends when he became a little tired and also extremely intoxicated,” said police.
"He sighted a tour bus, opened the hatch and closed it behind him sitting and falling asleep on a box within. To his surprise and the tourists’ surprise he’d found himself no longer in Belfast, but in Ballycastle!!
“Thankfully this male was safe and well and was helped with gaining travel back to Belfast. However, it’s safe to say he’ll be in somebody’s bad books after missing the wedding he should’ve been at today….in Belfast!”
