Should villages be left without bus services because of spending cuts?

Outraged villagers face being cut off from the rest of Hartlepool when bus services are axed at the end of this month - leaving them without any public transport.

Residents in Elwick and Dalton Piercy, on the outskirts of town, will be without any bus services during the day or night when Stagecoach and Tees Valley Coach Travel services are withdrawn.

It comes after support from Hartlepool Borough Council was cut in the budget.
