An small family-run bus company has stepped in to continue running vital services for rural villages on the Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire border.

It comes with local councils across our region reducing their bus subsidies leaving some communities feeling cut off.

Brian Clifford, who runs A-2-B buses in Melbourn near Royston, says bigger companies are reluctant to run some country bus routes because they don't make enough money to cover their costs.

"We’re encouraging drivers to check the latest weather and travel conditions before setting off on journeys, with strong winds and heavy rain expected from Tuesday evening until Wednesday morning.

“In high winds, there’s a particular risk to lorries, caravans and motorbikes so we’d advise drivers of these vehicles to slow down and avoid using exposed sections of road if possible.”
