    Background: The London bus strike is over. This was announced after a meeting of the busmen's delegates.

    Mr. Cousins went off straight away to London Transport's Headquarters; there the agreement ending the strike was signed. And a Transport Executive spokesman said tonight that they hoped to run a service as nearly normal as possible tomorrow. To find out about the problems of getting the buses back on the roads, our reporter Hardiman Scott had a word with a spokesman of London Transport.

    SYNOPSIS: Now it's just the technical job of getting the buses back on the road in time for tomorrow. The men whose job it is to look after London's buses and trolley buses are working hard to get them into perfect running order again. One of my colleagues -- Hardiman Scott - went along to a London Transport garage in North London and had a word with a District Superintendent there.

    So it'll be back to work again tomorrow for London's fifty-thousand bus workers.
