Vintage buses are set to return to east London's streets for a heritage day - with the chance to ride for free on two iconic models.

Tomorrow's Heritage Bus Day (March 23) will allow people to ride old buses along the 62 and 145 routes from 10am to 5pm.

The London Bus Museum, a registered charity, will be running the 1930s transport from Redbridge Station past Barking Bus Garage to Kent Avenue in Dagenham on the 145 route.

The old 62 bus will operate from Barking town centre to Chadwell Heath, going past Upney and Becontree Stations.

"Riding on the buses is completely free and you can ride with us all day," the museum's Facebook listing shows.

This "special service" is not operated by Transport for London, the museum added, but will run alongside regular 62 and 145 routes on which normal fares apply.

People can also attend an open day at Barking Bus Garage which has a small entrance fee with proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Research.
