Calls to scrap bus lane - and stop dangerous u-turns

Watch Tanya Mercer's report for ITV News Anglia.

Campaigners in Colchester want a bus lane scrapped after filming hundreds of drivers making dangerous u-turns because of the restrictions.

The stretch of road is between High Street and Queen Street.

Colchester Civic Society wants Essex County Council to change the road layout which stop cars from turning right.

Its video of cars making u-turns to avoid driving along the bus lane was viewed 65,000 in just four days.

The campaigners say the bus lane is a danger to pedestrians.

But the council insists it is needed in the town - and says drivers need to change their habits.
