Southport Town Centre not gritted & bus passengers stranded

Arriva pulled its buses from service in Southport last night (Friday 25th January 2012), despite there being only an inch of slush on the roads, leaving many stranded in Southport.  Stagecoach had no trouble running buses to Preston, but it appears that the first snowflake sends Arriva buses back to the depot.

For the second time in a fortnight, the last no 47 bus to Banks has failed to arrive, leaving passengers stranded includind several pensioners stranded.
