Around 2,000 people have signed a petition calling for action over the loss of rural bus services.

Labour's PPC for Corby and East Northants, Beth Miller, launched the petition after subsidies for services such as the 67 were ended by Northamptonshire County Council earlier this year, as part of wider budget cuts.

The 67 served rural areas around Corby including Gretton. Beth Miller says she has now passed on copies of the petition to county MPs and the county council.

A plan to have other councils provide funding towards a new rural service is reportedly being considered by borough authorities.
