Buses running through the centre of Brighton were affected by gas leak repairs for a second day today.

Hundreds of buses were unable to stop at some of the town’s busiest stops opposite Churchill Square shopping centre in Western Road.

Brighton and Hove Buses laid on extra staff to help people find their way to the correct bus stop as half a dozen bus shelters were taped off.

No time has been given for when the work of repairing the gas leak will be finished.
