Bus firm passes vehicle check
A BUS company criticised by parents for its school service has passed a vehicle inspection.
However Cedric Coaches has been warned it needs to make considerable efforts to restore the confidence of parents.
Parents had expressed concern after a number of alleged incidents involving the Ardleigh-based company’s school service to the Colne Community College, Brightlingsea.
Essex County Council, which awards contracts for school services, called in the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) to do an unannounced spot-check on the bus company. All vehicles and licences were found to be in order during the visit on Friday January 11.
Cedric Coaches declined to comment.
