A new 'hopper' bus in Holt has been well-received, according to its operator, Charles Sanders of Sanders Coaches. 

The bus service started running on September 5, with seven stops including the Heath Farm Estate, Edinburgh Road - for the country park - the EACH shop in the town centre and Kelling Hospital.

The other stops are at Woodfield Road, Cromer Road/Gresham's School and the North Norfolk Railway station.

Mr Sanders said the hopper was made possible thanks to Section 106 contributions from the developers of Holt's housing estates. 

He said: "We are pleased with how it has started. It has been well-received and reasonably well used as well."
