The Uppingham Hopper service will resume after the bus was repaired.

The vehicle, donated by Rutland County Council, was taken off the road last month after an electrical fault with the stairs. An alternative bus was loaned temporarily by the council but was taken back for school duties, meaning the service was suspended today (Tuesday, November 3).

But it has now been confirmed that the service will resume at 9am tomorrow (Wednesday, November 4).
