Buses on diversion in Norwich - photo special!

As previously reported, Norwich bus station is closed this week whilst repairs and maintenance works are carried out, this means buses which usually serve the bus station are diverted and are dropping off and picking up passengers on nearby streets.

Our regular correspondant David Bell visited the city yesterday and has sent a selection of photographs for us to share with you.

David reports: ''The X1 service westwards to Dereham, Kings Lynn and Peterborough is starting outside John Lewis in All Saints Green whilst the eastbound service and the X2 and Anglian service to Lowestoft are starting at the top end of Surrey Street outside Norfolk Tower.''

''The top end of All Saints Green is closed off to all traffic other than buses and is also the starting point for Konect services to Watton and Attleborough.''

''The Harford,Costessey and Thickthorn Park and Rides are starting outside the old hospital in St Stephens Road so you can get nice shots of them negotiating the roundabout at the top of St Stephens Street which they normally turn right at.''

''National Express and Megabus services are reversing into the bottom of the bus station and loading from there.''
