A bus company has announced changes to offer more regular evening services on a major route in Great Yarmouth.

The First Bus number 8 - which operates from James Paget University Hospital to Caister - will be running more frequently in the evenings on Mondays to Saturdays, starting on July 24.

Buses will be every 30 minutes until the last bus leaves Market Gates bus station for Caister or the James Paget at 11.15pm.

The mid-evening journey that extends to Martham via Scratby, Ormesby and Hemsby will run up to 30 minutes later throughout.

The improvements to evening services are being funded by the government's Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) to enhance local bus services for residents, in conjunction with Norfolk County Council.

It was announced earlier that the schedule of a rural bus route to Acle will be drastically reduced in September.

The Our Hire 72A service's reduced timetable comes as the council was accused of "overlooking" bus routes in the Yarmouth area.

The borough is expected to receive more than £5m of council money to improve services.
