A brand new bus shelter vandalised just weeks after being installed has been restored.

Swaffham's new advanced eco-bus shelter, part of Norfolk County Council's Bus Service Improvement Plan, was left in a sorry state by vandals on August 11.

The repairs were undertaken by Breckland Council on August 19 after it was left covered in graffiti and slogans.

The shelter has environmentally friendly grass roofing, new cycle racks, LED lighting, and real-time digital signage, informing passengers when buses will be arriving at the two town centre stops.

Councillor Paul Claussen, Breckland Council's executive member for economic development and growth, said: "This will contribute to our commitments of promoting sustainable transport, cutting net carbon emissions, and supporting bees, insects and nature to flourish."

In addition to the shelters, the area will see the installation of three sculptural cycle stands and lighted bollards, situated by the approach to Swaffham's churchyard off the high street.

The stops have been enhanced as part of the Swaffham High Street Heritage Action Zone.
