A homeless man who spent 10 years living in a Peterborough bus shelter has been immortalised in a new play about his life.
Scotsman Michael Ross, also known as Nobby, found fame in the local press and appeared twice in the London edition of The Pavement, having made his home in a local bus shelter where he received postcards, presents and food.
Tales of Ross's life - including his passion for golf, which he developed after a set of clubs were left outside his shelter – will now be brought to the stage as Our Nobby by touring theatre group Eastern Angles.
Ross became known as Nobby after a local yob sprayed his own tag, Nobby, on the bus shelter where he lived.
"Using the myths surrounding one of Peterborough's best-loved local figures, Our Nobby reflects on the city's history," said Eastern Angles. "This show will strike a chord with all those who remember Nobby or who have wondered where their own lives might be leading."
People from the city were asked to send in their own stories of Ross to be included in the play. Ross, who now lives in a local housing association flat, has not had any input into the play but has said that he is happy to have his story told.
