First restructure & Bluestar strike

We start with the news of a major restructure at First. First Bus is to be separated from the rest of First Group. At the moment it's unclear whether that means it'll be sold, either in parts or in one transaction, or whether it'll just be spun off from the group and floated on the stock market as a separate entity. We'll let you know as soon as First's fate becomes clearer.

Over at Bluestar, there could be some disruption to services this Tuesday 18th June, due to industrial action by members of the RMT. Keep an eye on their website and Twitter feed (which also appears on the right hand side of the desktop version of this page) for the latest details.
