Kevin Carr, managing director of Go North East, said:

“Due to the continuing bad weather and this evening’s forecasts we will be finishing our services earlier than usual today for the safety of our customers and our staff.  A full list of our last departures is shown on our website but generally last departures from city centres will be between 7pm and 8pm. Unfortunately, we’re unable to reply to individual queries due to the amount we’re receiving.

“We are planning to run as many services tomorrow, 1st March, as possible sticking to main roads initially and would ask passengers once again to walk to main roads to catch the bus. Anyone wishing to travel can keep up to date on our latest developments by visiting our website and Facebook and Twitter channels.

“We’d like to thank everyone for their patience today.
