Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “Obviously we’re continuing to deal with the loss of D Jones & Son as best we can and officers have worked, and continue to work tirelessly in order to secure alternative provision for those services which have been lost.

“We would ask members of the public to keep an eye on our social media, and those of transport service providers, in order to check up on the status of replacement services. Updates will also be available on the council’s news blog.

“Attached is an information report, which has gone to all members and all community councils, in order to update everyone on the ongoing situation.”
