The travel company will also be placing a poppy on each of its 500 buses across the region.

On Remembrance Sunday Stagecoach East Midlands will also be offering free travel to military, ex- military and emergency service personnel who are in full uniform and at 11am drivers have been asked to observe the two minutes silence, where safe to do so.

With Remembrance services planned at memorials in Worksop and Mansfield it is hoped that personnel wishing to pay their respects will take up the offer to travel across the East Midlands to the service of their choice.
