The £15 million bus station in Stoke-on-Trent will be officially opened by the Lord Mayor today.

The station has been open and running since March.

Up to 120 buses travel through the station every hour.

John Street will also be renamed as Lidice Way today to commemorate the city's links with the Czech mining village Lidice. After Hitler massacred its residents in 1942, a councillor from Stoke began a campaign to rebuild the area.
