Bus warning

EDITOR – Re Alford to Louth service axed (Leader, February 2).

It’s only a small piece in the Leader, and probably most people will ignore the article as it does not effect them as they drive or have a bus service, but they should be well advised to take stock of this bus service and what is happening to it.

In the future, due to lack of funding for rural buses, it surely won’t be long before bus routes in Lincolnshire will look like Beeching’s rail cuts of the 1960s to the wholesale slaughter of 1970, leaving towns, villages totally cut off, in the end becoming ghost towns and villages without inhabitants.
