THE response of Keighley bus drivers to the heavy snow that blanketed the district last week has been praised.

Their efforts were highlighted at the latest meeting of Keighley Public Transport Watch.

John Dunne, operations data controller for Keighley Bus Company, said: "The disruption caused by the snow caused chaos for everyone, not just ourselves.

"But it's not easy for us as every one of our local bus services in the town has to go up a hill.

"Our drivers were fantastic though. They were absolutely marvellous and they've received a lot of compliments."
