Another one to cease operations
A BUS company which has been in Accrington for around 40 years will end its services tomorrow.
M & M Coaches, in Craven Street, has announced that after a poor few years of business it will stop running buses around East Lancashire.
All 30 members of staff, drivers and the support team have been forced to find alternative work.
Transport manager Bob Tuffnell, who has worked for M & M Coaches for 19 years, said: “I’m gutted. We have been hit big by charges on bus departures, operator fees, changes in regulations that are coming through, along with the fact we just can’t afford to keep running anymore.
“I feel that the government have realised that they should never have privatised the bus industry and now they are trying to find a way back.”
The bus company provides nine services throughout East Lancashire...
