More than 2,500 people have signed a petition over changes to bus services in Wolverhampton - just two weeks after the opening of a new £22m bus station.

Passengers said routes have been cut or redirected and some services did not use the new terminal.

People living in Fallings Park can no longer get to nearby Wednesfield before 0900 BST and another service now bypasses Wednesfield High Street.

Centro said falling passenger numbers led to some changes.

'Outrage and frustration'

A spokesman said there have been changes to some parts of routes but the majority of links from Wednesfield were covered by the new number 25 service.

Only four routes were not going into the station, they added.

But Steve Evans, a Labour councillor at Wolverhampton City Council, said: "We've had people ringing us.

"It's absolute outrage and frustration at the way they have been treated."
