The council has defended its part in the row which has led to Whitby’s 83 year-old steam bus announcing its departure from the town by saying “we are not mindreaders”.

In the statement it says council officers had attempted to contact Elizabeth’s owners, Vern and Viv Smith by email but received no reply.

The council spokesperson said: “Council officers are not mind readers and without two way dialogue they cannot be expected to know what solution will work best.”
