New Derby bus station opens weeks after flood

A new bus station has opened to the public in Derby city centre, weeks after a flood at the building.

Buses left the new station, which has been built as the result of a five-year project, from 0800 BST.

Earlier this month, a burst pipe caused a serious flood at the building, leaving the floor under nearly three inches of water.

The new facility includes a modern concourse, electronic departure and information boards.

The city's previous bus station was demolished in 2006.
