Bus fares in Andover will increase on Sunday - just weeks before the town's new bus station opens for business.

Prices will be increased on Stagecoach services in the Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex areas, including daily and weekly tickets.

The company said 'We work hard to keep prices down for those who rely on the bus the most.

'However, continued rising costs including labour, fuel and insurance means our prices must increase. We understand this may be frustrating for our passengers, but we have done our best to keep changes to a minimum.

'We are determined to maintain high levels of investment in our fleet and to deliver a reliable bus operation. Despite these increases we believe we continue to offer a greener, smarter and better value way to travel.'
