Stagecoach bus drivers in Norfolk will no longer go on strike tomorrow after union officials decided to consider a revised pay offer.

Members of the transport union RMT had planned to stage a 24-hour walkout amid an ongoing dispute over pay and working conditions.

Service will now run as normal across the county.

The union have suspended the strike action and will now put the revised pay offer to its members via a ballot.

Andy Campbell, Stagecoach East managing director, said: 'We are pleased for our customers that the planned strike action has been suspended and we hope we are a step closer to reaching an agreement with the union.'
