A DOUBLE-DECKER bus has broken down in Blackburn town centre.

Buses have been diverted away from Penny Street while the vehicle is being repaired.

A Transdev spokesman said: "The bus has broken down at the traffic lights on Penny Street. It's a really unfortunate place for it to stop.

"Hopefully we'll have it moved as soon as possible. For now, buses will either be diverted past Morrisons or up Ainsworth Street."
