Passengers said goodbye to the past when First Scotland East officially pulled out of Falkirk Bus Station on Sunday. Those same passengers then said hello to the new “hub” area in the town centre’s Upper Newmarket Street, which was teeming with buses and customers on Monday.

0 Have your say THEY’RE like rotten teeth disfiguring the smile of welcome that Yorkshire’s towns and cities give residents and visitors – the ever-increasing number of empty shops.
