Things that don't make sense #3

Here we go again...

"A toddler was left sleeping on a bus in Leicester for more than two hours after being accidentally left behind," shouts this BBC news story, in bold font.

How terrible, poor little mite, etc., etc.
But hang on:
The child fell asleep just minutes after the bus left St Margaret's bus station.
He woke up five miles away in Groby and the driver Ishak Kachwal found him at the back of the vehicle.
Now, either buses drive v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y in Leicestershire, or that toddler wasn't really asleep for "more than two hours". In fact, subtract the "just minutes" from the time it takes to travel five miles, & the sleeping time was more like two minutes?

As a parent, I have no comment whatsoever to make on this bit:
Kian's parents only noticed he was missing when he did not join their four other children for pizza at home.
