Twenty eight bus drivers have tested positive for coronavirus following an outbreak.

It has affected drivers in Wrexham and disrupted bus services there.

Arriva has urged everybody to wear face masks on buses and insisted it has cleaning regimes in place to keep vehicles clean, following concerns over safety.

A spokesman for Arriva said: “We can confirm that 28 colleagues in Wrexham have tested positive for Covid-19.

“We are fully supporting all colleagues who need to self-isolate as part of the NHS Test and Trace, or as advised by a public health professional.

“The safety of our customers and colleagues is our number one priority and we are being guided every step of the way by expert organisations such as the Health and Safety Executive and Public Health Wales.

“This has caused inevitable disruption to our bus network in Wrexham and we are working to address this as quickly as we can.”
