Allegedly a ghostly London bright red double-decker bus that, in the mid 1930's, made hundreds of appearances at the intersection of St. Marks Road and Cambridge Gardens, in North Kensington. The road curved sharply there, but it was nothing that the usually excellent London drivers couldn't handle.
According to most popular accounts, it first started in 1934, when a motorist who had crashed his car but escaped unhurt told police that he was making the turn when a bright red double-decker bus came hurtling toward him, forcing him off the road. The motorist also reported that the bus lights were on, but that he couldn't see a driver or any passengers.
The authorities set out to track down the offending bus, but were surprised to find that no buses were scheduled in the area at that time or anywhere near that time.
Then more accidents started happening, and again the story was the same a red double-decker bus forcing the cars off the road. In every case, witnesses reported that the bus vanished right after it had caused the accidents.
Finally London officials straightened out the sharp curve, and there were no more accidents after that, nor was the phantom bus ever seen again. The tale is still told in the pubs of London today, sometimes a little differently, with the supposed death of the first motorist to have crashed after avoiding the phantom bus, as to add more flamboyancy and credibility to it.
