BREAKING NEWS: Number 3 bus victory for campaigners

CUTS planned for the number 3 bus will not go ahead – the Rasen Mail can reveal.

The existing hourly service between Lincoln and Market Rasen has been saved and there will be a bus every two hours from Market Rasen to Grimsby.

The news will come as a massive relief to the hundreds of people who signed petitions around the area.

Stagecoach had wanted to run just five buses a day after a 20 per cent cut in its tax relief on fuel. But the operator has struck a deal with Lincolnshire County Council to save the service.
