A number of changes to bus services in Norfolk will be introduced later this week.
Konectbus is making some revisions to its timetables across the county from Sunday September 17 in order to 'improve punctuality, enhance the network and meet demand.'
There will be extra buses on the network and the extension of routes across the county - but some buses will be pulled.

A revised timetable will be in operation with extra running time following the introduction of new speed limits in Wymondham and congestion at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
The 3.45pm 6 service from Norwich to Wymondham will no longer be in operation due to low passenger numbers.
