A BUS driver has spoken out about having "the best office in the world" after cameras rolled on the Jurassic Coast road.

An ITV film crew joined First Group buses to produce a feature for This Morning, highlighting what the Jurassic Coast has to offer between West Bay and Weymouth with Broadchurch currently hitting screens for the final series.

Bus driver Nick Dalkins, who is regularly asked by customers for a ticket to Broadchurch, was interviewed for the feature, which will be screened on Monday (3) morning. He was asked about the Broadchurch hotspots along the route of the X53 Jurassic Coaster.

He said: "It was a fantastic experience. I was a bit surprised and unsure of what would happened because I'm no actor, but it actually went really well.

"I was quite surprised when the producer said they wanted to focus more on the road and in between Bridport and Weymouth."

The B3157 coast road has had a lot more screen time in the third and final instalment of Broadchurch, and Mr Dalkins thinks the scenery and sites are very popular with visitors.

He said: "So many people get on the bus at Weymouth and ask for a return to Broadchurch, and I just humourously remind them that it's called West Bay.

"It's not what I would call normal bus driving - you do have to be a bit of a tourist information agent yourself. At the top of Abbotsbury Hill, people can just see for themselves what is on offer on that beautiful stretch. It's famous for so many things and people are so keen to visit the Jurassic Coast, that's what they ask for."

He added: "Since Broadchurch, I have noticed an increase in volume of passengers going to West Bay - it almost markets itself.

"Tourists always ask me if I get bored and I always say 'look at the view I get, I've got the best office in the world'."

Businesses in West Bay have experienced a boom in trade since Broadchurch put the area on the map.

The This Morning showcase also features the West Bay Hotel and Harbour News, which was used as a film location for the early episodes of the series.

Richard Attrill from Harbour News, thinks West Bay will remain popular with tourists once the final series has concluded.

He said: "I think people will still come to West Bay and reminisce about the programme. People come to West Bay because West Bay has a lot to offer, as well as for the Broadchurch stuff so I can't see us going to a ghost town.

"What has been good is that Broadchurch has brought in people who have and will return to West Bay."
