Bus cuts in Daventry area among worst in the country.

CUTS to bus services in the Daventry area have been branded among the worst in the UK.

Save Our Buses, a national campaign to protect local buses run by the Campaign for Better Transport, put Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) on a list of the 10 worst authorities for culling routes.

The campaign also says the county council is one of only three local authorities across the country looking at scrapping all supported bus services.

Last week NCC said it was looking at scrapping all subsidies it pays for buses, putting scores of routes at risk.
