Out & about in Lowestoft & Yarmouth - part 2

David Bell was Out & about in Lowestoft and Yarmouth earlier this month to catch up with the local bus scene, in particular the operations of First which have been transformed with the addition of newer and repainted buses (including the former X1 Gemini bodied Volvo B9TLs) over the past year or so. Also featured in this two part feature are Anglianbus, Ambassador Travel and Suffolk Norse.
