Guernsey bus drivers have called off planned strike action after agreeing terms with the bus operator.

CT Plus said it followed a "cordial meeting" with drivers who accepted that progress had been made on changing working conditions.

Drivers have been working to rule since 11 June, having held a 24-hour strike over working conditions and hours.

The company said it welcomed the news and was continuing work to restore the full timetable from 1 July.

The Unite union, which represents about half of the bus drivers, previously advised members not to stage a strike as the operator had made concessions.

Drivers claimed the schedules, introduced on 12 May, did not allow sufficient time for breaks between journeys.
