School children could be 30 minutes late for school as their bus is running late.

Tyrers Coaches tweeted shortly before 8.20am to warn passengers that the 617 school bus to Rivington and Blackrod High School is running half an hour behind.

Delays have been caused by a vehicle fault and students are being urged to stay at their stops as the bus will be back on track as soon as possible.

The company apologised for the inconvenience
