This bus driver was battling through the monsoon rain when his windscreen wiper broke, leaving him unable to see properly.

But he continued his journey when his assistant tied two bits of rope to the broken wiper, passed them through the side windows and then held on to them from behind.

The savvy man then alternatively pulled each rope, causing the wiper to sweep across the windscreen as the bus travelled from Pune to Karjat station near Mumbai.

Passenger Vishwas Patel, an IT worker who was on the bus, said: "Since it was raining heavily the driver couldn't see anything so they came up with this bizarre idea."

But it appeared to do the trick.
