Services affected from Sunday until further notice are in Hull and Beverley, including Services 54, 56/57, 63, 66 and 105, which will run less frequently. Beverley Service 122 will be temporarily suspended. Temporary timetables will be available from tomorrow at eastyorkshirebuses.co.uk. Those without internet access can get the new times by ringing the BusLine, on 01482 59 29 29.

Police are warning motorists to be on their guard following a rise in catalytic converter thefts across the Humberside Force area. Rising prices for metals used in the converters is being blamed. Police say all cars are potentially at risk; however, thieves are most likely to target hybrids – where the catalytic converter is used less and the metals are less likely to be damaged – or vehicles with a higher ground clearance, such as vans and SUVs.
And finally, Beverley Mayor Linda Johnson has reported that the civic treasure hunt organised throughout the summer has raised £168 for the charity SCOPE to support its special phone line, which provides free and independent support and advice to people with disabilities and their families.
