A DOZEN jobs are to be lost at Selby bus depot following £600,000 of subsidy cuts by North Yorkshire County Council.

The cuts will also mean a loss of bus services after 5.30pm on weekdays, and services on Sundays and Bank Holidays will be reduced to one bus to York.

A spokesman for Arriva Yorkshire, which has negotiated the terms and conditions for employees at the depot, said there would be no compulsory redundancies. Nigel Featham, for Arriva Yorkshire, said: “The aim of these plans is to ensure that, despite the loss of this work, the Selby depot remains in a viable position to provide quality bus services.”
