A woman from Chard has set up a campaign to improve the bus network in Somerset.

Melissa Whittaker wants better services after waiting nine hours for a doctor to visit her son because there wasn't a Sunday bus to get him to hospital.

It comes as new figures from the Department of Transport show the number of miles clocked up by buses in Britain has hit its lowest point in 28 years.
