He has now decided to call time on his career at the age of 36 after failing to find a new club following his release by Leeds United this summer.

“After 18 years living my childhood dream of being a professional footballer the time has come to call it a day and retire.

I have to say a massive thank you to the clubs, staff and fans that I have been lucky enough to play for and in front of. It has been a privilege.

It has been a magical journey so far and as one door closes another opens. Let the new adventures begin!”

– Adam Drury

Council insists Luton Dunstable Busway is a success, despite lower than expected passenger numbers

As the Luton Dunstable Busway nears its first anniversary, figures show that passenger numbers are lower than first hoped.

It was estimated around 2,500,000 journeys would be made on the route in the first nine months, but the actual number was just over 1,000,000.

Luton Borough Council insists the project is a success, and announced today that another service will be added.

"Six years ago when we were doing the business case, there were higher figures and it was an assumption.

Of course, the recession came in between that, but I think with 1.3million passengers on the busway in 2014, it's great news in any language."
