Bath bus shelter replaced after six-year wait
After a six-year battle, residents in Newbridge Hill are celebrating after a new bus shelter was installed.
The original shelter was vandalised in 2006, forcing passengers to stand at the stop while waiting for a bus.
They were also exposed to the weather, with no shelter if it rained.
But now Bath and North East Somerset Council has installed a new one after a campaign by local people backed by deputy chairman of the Bath Conservative Association Mike Clarkson, and conservative campaigner Dan Hogston.

The news of the new shelter has delighted campaigners, including 93-year-old Joan Ford, from Lyme Road. She uses the bus regularly with her friends to get to Bristol, and found it difficult standing while she waited.
Her daughter Heather Armishaw said: "Mum is delighted that the council have answered her request.
"Thanks to Dan and Mike for their persistence which has finally paid off."
Mr Clarkson said: "A group of pensioners had been lobbying the council for a new bus shelter with bench seat for several years with our support. They are delighted it has been installed."
