A bus route from Bridport to Yeovil has been saved after the County Council agreed to step in and subsidise it.

First were planning on pulling service 47, that runs via Beaminster and Crewkerne in the New Year as they said it was becoming increasingly unviable to run.

The County Council have now agreed to run the service under contract until June 2014.

Commenting on the decision, Dervla McKay, General Manager for First Dorset says: "We very much appreciate Dorset County Council offering  its support in helping us to continue this service. We hope its re-introduction will prompt more people to start using it again to ensure we can keep it running for the foreseeable future."
