Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Cambridge News


Mr Edward Cameron complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article reporting on reductions in bus services contained inaccuracies.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification in the newspaper:

Some bus services will be reduced, not axed

More details have emerged about changes to Stagecoach bus services due to take place from April 17.

Following a story in the News on February 23, we would like to clarify that while the No 15 service from St Ives to Cambridge will be cancelled as reported, the 91, 95 and 96 buses on that route will continue to run as before.

Furthermore, the March to Peterborough No 33 bus will not be cancelled but will instead operate at a reduced level during off-peak times.

The 66 and 65 services will operate hourly from Huntingdon to St Neots - and not involve St Ives as was stated.

Finally, it should be added that a number of services under the heading ‘service reductions' in our February 23 article will run at the same level but with an amended timetable.

These include the new X8 service, which has directly replaced the X7, the Cambridge to Bury St Edmunds No 11 service and the Cambridge to Ely No 12 bus.
