    They say if you want something done right, do it yourself...

    More than 150 residents have set up their own "Uppingham hopper" bus service after the Rutland route was axed last year.

    Residents said transport "became acute" after the relocation of a surgery.

    The local people teamed up, bought a bus and started their own volunteer-run service when they could not get council funding.

    There are no charges for passengers, but donations are encouraged. The service will run five days a week from 09:00 until 17:00.

    It is funded by a loan from Rutland County Council, the town council, businesses and residents.

    BBC News

    An extra £5m has been pledged to repair about 1,700 potholes in Leicestershire.

    Leicestershire County Council said it has earmarked the cash on top of the £21m budget for highway maintenance because of the "harsh winter".

    The authority said about 20 road defects appear each week and each piece of preventative work can stop up to 25 potholes forming.

    Last year the county council spent £4.6m on patching and restorative works.

    Quote Message: The harsh winter has taken its toll – in January, we received three times as many calls about potholes compared to January 2017. This extra money means we can prevent more potholes occurring." from Blake Pain Leicestershire County Council
