First said in a Tweet at around 6pm: “Due to acts of vandalism on Boundary Road, the 56 services from the terminus are withdrawn until further notice.

“Outbound services are diverted via Manor Oaks Road, Whites Lane, Maltravers Road, right up Maltravers Terrace and Manor Oaks Road.”

It is not the first service to have part of its route suspended due to vandalism

The number seven route had a section on curfew this year because of yobs pelting vehicles with stones near Deerlands Avenue, Parson Cross.
