A passenger on the Megabus coach at the centre of a police alert on the M6 Toll road said police pointed guns at them as they got off the bus.
Police were called after reports of “vapour” coming from a bag on board the Preston to London bus – which turned out to be from an electronic cigarette.
Police said the suspicions raised were “genuine” but unfounded.
For the 48 passengers on the coach a trip to London resulted in dramatic scenes as armed police swooped to close the road and secure the coach.
Jenny Lister was one of those onboard.
