Since the Death Star was blown up, Darth Vader’s found himself without transport.

But the 115 bus from Plant Hill Road is probably a little bit out of his way.

Characters from Star Wars, Doctor Who and Futurama dropped into yes at The Hive in Plant Hill Road for an event for Science Week.

And they even took a walk around the estate, dropping into the chemist and having a brew in the local café.

The event was organised to introduce people in Blackley to careers in science and technology.
