UK faces bus driver shortage

A shortage of bus drivers in the UK is being caused by better pay being offered to drive HGVs, according to a union.

It's thought there are more than 4,000 vacancies for bus and coach drivers across the UK.

Some companies have been forced to cancel services because not enough drivers are available.
