Roadworks have caused lengthy delays for a key bus route.

First Worcester has warned passengers of the X50 service to expect delays.

This is due to ongoing roadworks in Evesham, near Abbey Bridge.

The service is currently suffering 25-minute delays.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused," said a First Worcester spokesperson.

The X50 service runs from Crowngate Bus Station in Worcester to Evesham Bus Station.

According to the First Worcester website, the service is already having to divert due to an "emergency road closure" on Defford Road in Pershore.

The bus will not be able to serve stops on Defford Road, Three Springs Road or Broad Street, in both directions.

Buses will instead serve all stops on B4084 High Street, Pershore.

This is likely to be in place until Friday, April 14, First Worcester has said.
