Talks on station chaos

A MEETING to tackle school-run problems at Morpeth Bus Station will be arranged.

Morpeth Town Council has agreed to take the lead in organising a meeting with bus companies, Sanderson Arcade and Northumberland County Council.

It follows a report in the Herald last month in which safety concerns were raised about the facility when school and service buses come together and there is chaos around the parking bays.

The town council will set up the meeting, but will make it clear to parties that it has no powers to bring about a solution as the bus station is outside its remit.
