A QUESTION mark hangs over the long term future of hundreds of Wigan public transport jobs today with the confirmation that FirstGroup have sold their entire Wigan operation to rivals Stagecoach in a £12m deal.

This includes their newly opened Bryn depot, 120 buses and more than 300 employees.

Giles Fearnley, First UK Bus Managing Director, said: “The sale of our Wigan bus business marks continued progress in our programme of selected asset and business disposals as we review the scope and scale of our UK Bus portfolio and reposition it for the longer term.”
