A PHILANDERING husband is living in fear of being caught with his trousers down after a sex tape of him with his mistress was accidentally left on a North Yorkshire bus.

The cheating husband begged a bus company to help him find the footage left in a holdall after calling the company’s lost property department and confessing to his exploits.

The bag containing the evidence of his infidelity was left on a number 17 bus, a circular route from Scarborough town centre to nearby villages Eastfield and Osgodby.

However staff were unable to find it and believe another passenger must have unwittingly taken the bag after the man got off the bus at Scarborough.

East Yorkshire Motor Services depot manager Chris Agar said: “He admitted he was married and his wife was not in the movie but his girlfriend was.

“He was more concerned about the fact his wife would find out. All we can assume is that someone on the bus decided to walk off with the holdall and got more than they bargained for.”

The incident was revealed in an appeal to avoid losing property.
