TV celebrity Johnny Kingdom and his wife Julie were among the first people to enjoy a ride on the Moor Rover Bus, the new flexible public transport service for Exmoor.

The service provides access for residents and visitors alike to areas previously unreachable by public transport.

It is operated by AtWest with funding from the Exmoor National Park Sustainable Development Fund and is running daily from 8am to 8pm until the end of September.

Passengers can be picked up from any prearranged location in the West Somerset area of the national park and dropped off at places not covered by regular public transport services, enabling them access to walking trails, remote beauty spots and activity centres.
