A new bus service is to link Bungay and Ditchingham to Norwich.

With a frequency of every 30 minutes at peak times, the First Buses 41/X41 service will enable passengers to travel onwards to the UEA, Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital, Norwich train station and Broadland Business Park.

The service will launch on Monday.

First Buses intend to build upon the success of the number 40 Charcoal Line service between Norwich and Poringland which launched in April 2016.

Steve Wickers, managing director of First Eastern Counties said: 'We are proud to introduce this service which will provide Bungay and Ditchingham links to our wider Norwich network.

'The Charcoal Line has been a resounding success since its launch, and we believe this will build upon further what we have already achieved with the Network Norwich concept.'

Poringland will now receive up to three Charcoal Line buses an hour direct into Norwich.
