An Aberdeen bus driver has been crowned bus driver of the year.
Adam Ksiazek, 36, was named UK Bus Driver of the year, seeing off competition from almost 100 drivers.
The First Bus employee won the prestigious award at the high-profile event after coming fourth place in last year’s competition.
Adam, from Aberdeen, said: “It is amazing to win this competition.
“I couldn’t believe it when my name was read out as I didn’t think I had done as well as last year but when I saw my scores it started to sink in.
“I couldn’t have done it without the support of my wife Monika, the guys from the First Group Training Academy and my colleagues at First Aberdeen.
“It has also been wonderful to receive messages of congratulations from drivers from other companies.”
Andrew Jarvis, managing director of First Bus in Scotland, said: “This is a fantastic achievement by Adam and we warmly congratulate him for taking first place in a challenging competition.”
The awards took place in Blackpool.
