SOME Eastbourne bus services are being cancelled due to a shortage of drivers.

Stagecoach South East said the 22, 98 and 99 services have been disrupted due to a lack of driver availability.

Matthew Maytum, Press Officer for Stagecoach South East, said: “The national shortage essentially comes as a result of a variety of factors.

“Similarly to the HGV situation, we are about 4,000 bus drivers short across the country.

“These problems have mainly come about due to the effect of Brexit, coronavirus, and difficulties with the DVLA processing licences.
