CHANGES to bus services in West Fife came into operation today (Monday) which has included the introduction of a new service aimed at helping Dunfermline Amazon workers get to and from work.

Stagecoach East Scotland says alterations have been made to routes, service numbers and timetables across Fife and Perth.

Several services had been due to be slashed as part of the changes however last week Fife Council confirmed they had stepped in to save routes described as "uneconomical commercial but socially essential".
