Midlands buses getting slower as roadworks take their toll

Buses are a lifeline for thousands of people across the Midlands, but some routes are slower now than they have been in years with roadworks and congestion taking their toll.

Midlanders make millions of bus journeys every year, but one operator says the average speed on some of its routes is now just six miles per hour. We sent our reporter Melissa Wright on one of the buses in central Birmingham during our live programme to find out what the problem is.
