Bus lane review planned by Bristol mayor

The mayor of Bristol has said he will conduct a review of the city's bus lanes to assess which ones are under-used in a bid to reduce congestion.

The move by George Ferguson comes as Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson plans to suspend bus lanes for a nine-month trial period in October.

Mr Ferguson said most of the bus lane network is "essential" but added under-used lanes could be identified.

He said he will work with local bus companies on the research.
