A new Great Yarmouth to Norwich bus service is set to double in frequency after proving a hit with passengers.
Operator Anglian Bus announced this week that the A47 service would be changed from an hourly to half-hourly service and extended to Gorleston from April.
The express service stopping on route in Acle will be rebranded the X47, alternating with the A47 that travels via Brundall and Blofield.

Anglian director Andrew Pursey said: “The A47 has surpassed all our expectations and it is particularly pleasing that we started the service in the middle of winter, when passenger demand is lower. Now we are all geared up for the summer and with the travel concessions going nationwide it should encourage even more people to travel by bus to holiday resorts like Yarmouth.
“It is also very positive that passengers from Brundall and Blofield are travelling in both directions.”
