Out & about in Lowestoft

Our regular correspondant David Bell visited Lowestoft last week, the Suffolk coastal town has plently of interesting things for bus enthusiasts to see, from Anglianbus' gas buses to an abundance of First vehicles in their latest livery.

Here we take a look at a small selection of buses that can be found operating in the town, all of the photographs in this post were supplied by and are © David Bell.
