Martin 'Leadfoot' Gunner boasts that he is one of the fastest getaway drivers in the world. Banks, betting shops, bullion vans - you name it, no one can get away from it faster than Martin 'Leadfoot' Gunner. Unfortunately, Martin always works alone, which means that although he is able to make a speedy escape from any predicament, he rarely has any need to, as there is never anyone with him to do the actual robbery. The police regularly spot him sitting outside banks and post offices, engine running, before he suddenly tears off for no apparent reason. And whilst no theft is involved, Martin still manages to cause disruption and mayhem as he cuts up other traffic, careers down pavements and hurtles down narrow alleyways, sending cardboard boxes and oil drums flying. He's been summonsed, fined and banned from driving several times, but none of this seems to slow him down. But now at last it looks like he's finally going straight, after being offered a job that will make the best use of his talents. He's going to be a bus driver.
