Coastliner to reveal special Tadcaster related name for new bus

Tadcaster Bridge Opens

(Updated 5:29pm 16th February 2017)

Back in December Coastliner asked the people of Tadcaster to submit ideas to name one of their new buses on the Leeds - Yorkshire Coast route.

They knew there were many unsung heroes from the winter floods of December 2015. People who helped others clear out their homes and businesses.  People who devoted their waking moments to raising funds for the town's recovery and people who helped to rescue others stranded by the floodwaters on that fateful day which took down the town's bridge.

Coastliner wanted to name one of their high-tech new buses after a Tadcaster Hero.

Hundreds of nominations were received through Facebook and on Twitter.

The judging panel were overwhelmed by the response.

You will be able to find out the result this weekend at the special family fun day which will mark the reopening of the bridge (Sunday, 19 February) 

We'll let you into a little secret - it's not 'Bridgey McBridge-face'!
