A potential bus strike in Norwich has been averted after a pay offer was accepted by drivers, with 218 voting for it and 117 against.

Under the plans staff will get a 2.73pc raise as well as a one-off payment of £125 per driver.

Pay for drivers on rest days will also increase to £8 but all other terms and conditions remain the same.

Unite, which represents First drivers, urged staff to take the deal.

Last year First drivers in many parts of the country staged a series of day-long strikes in response to a pay freeze by the company.
