A YOUNG mum in Taunton has spoken out about the treatment she has received on Taunton's First bus service.

Vickie Moran, 23, who is six months pregnant, regularly pays the £2.10 return fare to go into the town centre on the No. 1 Ladymead bus from Cheddon Road with her 13-month old son, Dylon.

But she can't always get on the bus due to a driver discretion policy towards buggies.

Claire Smeddon, public relations officer for the First travel company, said: "The drivers are pleased to accommodate where possible, though 7am to 9am and 4.30pm to 6pm are difficult times."
