Bup Stop in Bristol

Well the West Country dialect,  especially "Bristle" can be difficult to understand at times, but apparently, according to the marking on the road, there is now a "Bup Stop" whereas most of us are used to Bus Stops. Not one I've heard before. Naga Monchetti on BBC Breakfast suggested that maybe it was meant to be "Burp Stop"  Grin
