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.
