Bus services will not be withdrawn because of anti-social behaviour.

Last month two bus windows were smashed when something was thrown at them near the McDonald's in Regent Road, Great Yarmouth.

Head of operations for First Eastern Counties, Chris Speed said at the time in circumstances involving persistent criminal damage to their buses and an increased threat to the safety of staff and customers, they would review the situation and that could involve the withdrawal of a service to an area temporarily, until the problem is resolved.
