Tempers flare in bus stop row

Tempers flared as councillors finalised controversial plans yesterday to move a town centre bus stop.

One opponent of plans to move the stop in Windsor round the corner from Peascod Street into Charles Street was warned by Royal Borough council leader David Burbage that she would be escorted out of the cabinet meeting if she interrupted again.

Independent councillor John Penfold, 81, who uses the bus between Windsor and Dedworth himself, described Charles Street as 'one of the most inhospitable roads in Windsor' and totally unsuitable for a bus stop.

But the ruling Conservatives on the cabinet confirmed plans to move the stop there on a temporary basis to see if the experiment worked.
