Move over Reg Varney because Morecambe’s MP has gone On the Buses.

David Morris MP travelled on local buses on Friday to talk to passengers about proposed cuts to services.

Mr Morris hopped onto buses in Carnforth, Halton, Over Kellet and Nether Kellet and collected signatures on apetition calling for Lancashire County Council not to withdraw services to rural areas such as Halton, Arkholme and the Kellets.

The cash-strapped council currently subsidises 20 per cent of Lancashire’s bus services and claims the move to cut rural village buses would save £3.8m over two years.

Reg Varney was the star of hit 1970s sitcom On The Buses.
