Bus Company Put Up For Sale
7:02am 14th November 2014
One of Cornwall's main bus companies has been put up for sale.
There are fears for jobs at Western Greyhound, which runs a string of services, including around St Agnes, Roche, Mevagissey, Truro, Newquay and Saltash.
Interested buyers have to come forward by 5pm on Friday.
Last year 35 of its buses were lost in an arson attack on its Summercourt depot.
London property agents ES Group, which is handing the sale, described Western Greyhound as a "Well established independent company operating routes within Cornwall and into Devon and Plymouth."
Turnover in the year ending September 2014 was just under £8m but the company has come under fire recently from passengers angry about late services.
On Monday it announced a string of services were being suspended, which it blamed on "an unprecedented shortage of drivers."
The company insisted this would be "temporary."7:02am 14th November 2014
