A second bus drivers' strike in Cornwall has been postponed.

Hundreds of Duchy passengers were hit when staff at First walked out in a pay row two weeks ago.

Now the RMT union is suspending more action planned for Thursday after a new offer from bosses.

In a statement the company said: "We are pleased to announce that the industrial action planned for Thursday 8 November had been suspended by the union representing drivers and engineers in Devon and Cornwall. This follows talks on Friday 2 November afternoon during which a new offer was tabled by the company.

"The union will be meeting with its members this week to consult on the offer and in the meantime the planned industrial action has been suspended. This means that bus services in Devon and Cornwall will operate as normal on Thursday 8 November. Buses will also operate as normal on Friday 9 November, the date that the union had previously said that they would stage a walkout.

“We continue to work with the union to resolve the ongoing dispute.”

The offer is involves a 2% rise in December, followed by another 2.3% increase in April.
