Unreliable bus forces teen to leave job
12:00pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
A TEENAGER been forced to change jobs because the bus she relied on hardly ever turned up on time.
Abigail Ward, 18, had to catch the First 104 service from Manningtree to Colchester to get to her full time job at Debenhams.
However the bus rarely ever ran to schedule and Miss Ward has been forced to take a job closer to home in order to ensure she gets to work on time.
“I was absolutely at the end of my tether with them. I was paying out £120 per month for a ticket and it was never on time."
A spokesman for First said: “We have been experiencing issues on our 104 service and are working hard to resolve them."
