Storm Franklin: the latest updates for Doncaster, Sheffield and Rotherham bus travel

Written by Megan Thomas

Storm Franklin has disrupted bus services in South Yorkshire, after causing winds of up 70mph across the region and widespread flooding.

Persistent rainfall between all three of the past week’s storms have caused the River Don to overflow in several places.

Most disruption to Sheffield and Rotherham’s public transport is caused by flooding at Meadowhall, meaning many services are diverting travel away or stopping services earlier in the route.

Information from Travel South Yorkshire explains the changes to today’s bus services.
