• London Buses' Norbiton garage is to close after only six years in its present form.
The garage, which belongs to LBL subsidiary, London United Busways, was built in 1984, though LBL says there was a garage on the site for many years previously.
The Surrey garage lost routes to other operators in a recent shake-up of bus services in the Kingston area, LBL explains. The number of buses is expected to drop from 107 to 40 when the new operators take over the former London United routes.
An exact date has yet to be set for the closure; LBL says only that it will be in "the near future".
The Transport and General Workers' -Union says that everyone at the depot is "very sick" about the closure.
