The new-look bus is part of a fleet of vehicles owned by the North Walsham-based charity, which aims to reduce isolation and help people without their own transport to engage with their communities.

The four students' colourful artwork was chosen from more than 70 entries into a competition run by NNCT as part of a Lottery-funded project.

Claire Abbs, who is the charity's chief executive, said she hoped the bus would help highlight the work of NNCT, and encourage people to find out more about the difference community transport made , particularly in rural areas.

She added: "It was so lovely seeing the ideas the young people came up with and we are really pleased with the finished design."
