Volunteers replace axed Rutland bus service

Unhappy with news their local bus service was going to be axed, residents of Uppingham in Rutland took matters in to their own hands.

A group of 150 volunteers got together to start up the Uppingham Hopper, a minibus service for the town.

The Hopper runs in and around the town, is staffed by volunteer drivers and passengers are asked for donations towards running costs.
