Some of the Gower's most beautiful beaches will be accessible by bus on a Sunday after new routes were launched.

Swansea council funding means the two services will run from the city's bus station to Rhossili, Llanrhidian, Llanmadoc and Llangennith.

The weekend summer service starts on Easter Sunday and is safeguarded for three years.

It is hoped the move will ease traffic congestion and allow tourists and locals who do not have cars to visit.
