The East Anglian Daily Times (p11) reports that Essex CC is furious with the First Bus company which, it says, has 'ratted' on an agreement to develop an experimental electric-powered bus for Essex.

Councillor Tom Dale told the paper: 'They have ratted on the deal. If this bus were developed the county council could show that it worked and, if the public sees that, they will put on more pressure to have them running across the county.'

First Bus is the new multi national owner of Badgerline, the company which originally pioneered the initiative. Essex CC put£25,000 into the deal, says the EADT.
