AN UXBRIDGE firm played a low-key but important role in the recent state visit to Britain of one of the USA's presidential candidates over the weekend.
MCH Minibuses, based in Wallingford Road, Uxbridge, were hired to transport staff and the entourage of Barack Obama across London.
David Tarling, Transport Co-ordinator at MCH Minibuses, said: "We were driving Obama around, we do a lot of work for the American Embassy.
"We only found out about the job last Wednesday, it's always late notice because of security issues.
"It's obviously exciting to be involved in the motorcade but to us it's just part of the work that we do."
In June MCH transported George Bush, and in the past they have driven former president Bill Clinton and Condoleeza Rice around London.
He added: "We took the CIA, secret service and some press, it's always nice for the drivers to do it because of the profile of the thing and the fact its on TV, plus its something to tell their mates."
In Mr Obama's busy visit he met former prime minister Tony Blair, along with Gordon Brown and David Cameron.
