PLANS to change the funding of concessionary public transport which could affect Topsham's bus and train-user have been supported by Exeter City Council.
The local authority announced this month they would back a Government consultation document to alter the system.

A report was given to the council's economy scrutiny committee last Thursday, June 11, which summarised the government's consultation document on the future of concessionary travel.
