Absolutely fantastic reading (and photos) from yourself Darren, and Les. Even though I'm not from Burnie, the history of Nortons is very enthralling as very little was known/told beforehand. I would like to make contact with you Darren if I may, so shall send a PM message asking your details. I have made contact with Les, so have his details already. It would be very much appreciated AND beneficial to you in your research too.

Thanks guys... Just finished chatting with Neil and it looks like I will be able to share the story with more people than I had ever hoped to.

The video has arrived so I will be editing it in the next week or so and I'll work out a way to get some of it on here for all to see

Les, the film footage show the bus being dragged back onto the road.... Sideways by the back end first.... I'll try and get it up on here first for you
