Evening bus services in one part of Bristol are being temporarily withdrawn after two robberies in a week.

Police say the same man threatened two drivers and stole money on September 25 and 6 October in the Henbury area of the city.

First Bus has now withdrawn evening services on Crow Lane, where the incidents took place.

A statement from the firm said the decision was "made with the safety of passengers and staff in mind".

Services 1, 75 and 76 will now terminate at Crow Lane "for the foreseeable future".
