HYNDBURN’S MP is backing a campaign to reinstate a Baxenden bus service.

A campaign by Hyndburn councillors June Harrison and Terry Hurn is calling for the reinstatement of the number 12 bus service following the subsidy withdrawal from LCC and consequent ending of the previous service.

MP Graham Jones said: “We have spoken to bus operators in the hope that a market day service may be revived based on sufficient patronage for the service.”
