Out & about in Great Yarmouth - part 2

It's been a good while since our last general update on the latest bus scene in the East Norfolk seaside town of Great Yarmouth so a recent visit to the area by our regular correspondent David Bell to photograph First's recently unveiled heritage livery gives us a great chance to catch up, included in this two part feature are a selection of David's excellent photos taken in the town on the day, operators featured include First whose local fleet has continued to be varied and also increasingly modern in recent years as well as Go Ahead owned Anglianbus...
