A transport company picked two familiar faces to help it launch a new bus service in south east Northumberland as part of a multi-million pound investment in the county.

Arriva North East has launched the Sapphire Service X21/X22 between Newbiggin, Ashington and Newcastle, via Stakeford, Wansbeck Estate, Guide Post and Bedlington.

The buses were officially unveiled at the Newbiggin Maritime Centre by royal lookalikes the Queen and Prince Charles, giving guests and passers-by a ‘right royal welcome’.
