Get on the bus for computer help

A bus travelling through Breckland will be offering a special kind of service to computer and internet novices.

The district council has teamed up with the BBC's First Click campaign to provide one-to-one training as part of the national Get Online initiative.

It hopes to get people who cannot use computers or the internet using the world wide web.

The beginners' courses take place on Breckland's mobile one-stop bus, which travels around villagers delivering council services.

Participants will be taught how to switch on a computer, use the internet and set up and use an email account.

Local organisations, village halls and parish councils can apply for dedicated training sessions for their community as well.

It is reckoned that, across the UK, 9.2m people have never been online.
