Hundreds of students voted for their favourite design, and celebrated its unveiling alongside Holi, a festival of love and togetherness in Hinduism.

Volunteers from Brighton & Hove Impetus, which connects people to reduce isolation and improve well-being, were on hand during the bus launch to give advice on local support services.

Brighton and Hove Buses managing director Martin Harris said the company has launched a Chatty Bus scheme to help others.

He said: "Lois has done a fantastic job designing a bus that we hope will make people feel good when they see it.

"We are delighted to work with her, the university and Impetus to tackle loneliness and isolation."
