Thirty-two brand new single deck buses that provide greener travel are arriving to Basingstoke.

The new fleet of buses will feature free on board Wifi, USB charging points and take over 70% of the town's bus network.

It represents an investment of over £5m to improve the local transport network.

The buses have the latest Euro 6 engine technology that reduces nitrogen oxide levels by 80% compared to the previous buses.

It is part of the aim to tackle congestion and reduce the carbon footprint of the local community.
