London double-decker bus to be in next James Bond flick

London: James Bond’s flash new motor for his latest film is a London double-decker bus.

Producers of the hotly-awaited movie Skyfall borrowed a new red Routemaster for scenes they are currently filming in the capital, the Sun reported.

The bus features in an action scene set in Trafalgar Square involving the 007 spy, played by Daniel Craig.

But the exact storyline is being kept under wraps.

The Routemaster, with its famous open rear platform, has been brought back by London Mayor Boris Johnson after being scrapped by Ken Livingstone in 2005.

Mr Johnson said: “Straight out of Q’s lab, this machine is a tribute to London’s ingenuity and cunning.

“We look forward, like 007, to seeing off rivals and flying the flag for Britain.”
