A popular bus link that links central London to both Hatfield and Welwyn will be scrapped as it is losing money, the operator has announced.

Transport company Arriva has revealed the 797 route, which calls in the village and at several stops in Hatfield on its way from Stevenage to Victoria, will be withdrawn from February.

For a full report and reaction, see next week’s Welwyn Hatfield Times, in shops from Wednesday, December 10.
