Fun on the Fintry Bus

A very small Dundee United supporter dressed in tweed trousers and a black and white jumper, kept passengers on the Fintry bus amused on Wednesday night.

He chattered incessantly and tried to feed the woman who was carrying him some toast. That caused some grins but there was outright laughter when his tail caught the face of the man in the seat infront. You see this United fan was in fact - a very small monkey.
