Buses checked in police operation

School transport vehicles in Alnwick were checked this week as part of national Operation Coachman to make sure children travelling to and from school are safe.

Motor Patrols Inspector Dave Guthrie said: “The operation has seen officers stop and speak with those transporting children by bus and coach, as well as private hire vehicles, in the Alnwick area to make sure they have the relevant licence, and check their vehicles to make sure they are safe and roadworthy.”
