North Norfolk based Sanders Coaches were due to increase their fares from February 1 but are now not doing so because of the recent drop in fuel costs.

A message on the company's website states that they had planned an fare increase from February because of costs including insurance, company overheads, and vehicle parts, but that planned increase had now been delayed for the foreseeable future.

The website states; 'We hope our customers will enjoy the benefit of maintained lower fares and continue to support our services as we endeavour to ensure we continue to operate every current service.'

The family run business, which was set up in 1975, offer bus and coach services from north Norfolk area into Norwich and towns including Great Yarmouth. They also provide school buses and buses on market days to different towns and villages.
