The high cost of bus fares in Bristol is to be discussed in the House of Commons. Bristol West MP Stephen Williams has tabled an early day motion saying the city's economy is suffering because of high prices charged by First Bus.

Mr Williams says services need to be geared to suit passengers rather than the company. A First Bus spokesman said they were committed to ensuring Bristol has an excellent transport network.
