A bus company has stopped running its services along a road in St Leonards due to the poor state of the road surface.

Stagecoach said a number of its routes have been diverted until resurfacing works are completed.

Harrow Lane is a main link to the Conquest Hospital on The Ridge from the west of the town and buses along the affected road stop at a number of schools.

A spokesperson for Stagecoach said: "The condition of the road surface has deteriorated in recent months. We alerted East Sussex Highways in November and we understand an assessment of the road surface was carried out recently. To prevent damage to buses we've had to make the decision to reroute our services away from the affected area until resurfacing works are completed."
