A bus shelter in an east Suffolk village has been re-opened just over six months after it was burnt down by vandals.
Residents were angry when the shelter, which sits in the centre of the village of Wickham Market, was hit by fire last July.
Now, however, bus users will be able to wait in the shelter once more after a bespoke structure was built by Shelter Solutions.
A spokesman for Wickham Market Parish council said there had been “many months of considerable planning” to ensure that the shelter would best serve the community.
The bus shelter was officially opened by John Caley who helped to build the previous shelter with his late father when it was originally installed.
