Nottingham bus service to East Midlands Airport axed

An airport bus service connecting Nottingham with East Midlands Airport is to be axed, just months after it started.

Bus operator Premiere Travel is stopping its 24-hour Red Flyer service, which it took over in March.

A company spokesman said "despite our best efforts and support from regular customers we can no longer afford to continue the service".

He added without financial support "it was always going to be a challenge".

Managing director Steve Greaves said many people had fought to save the service and had gone out of their way to help.

But he said the company had been "unable to find a sustainable solution".
