Hopes 747 bus service will become self sufficient

Work is underway to make the 747 bus service from Uppingham to Leicester self sustainable.

It's after Rutland and Leicester county council's announced last week that they were to subsidise the route for another year. 

Former provider Centrebus decided to scrap it after a fall in numbers.

But, now Uppingham Town Council have said the number of passengers using it has increased.
