PRENTICE of Haddington has launched a new bus service through East Lothian.

The new 118 Longniddry to Fort Kinnaird service launched today (Monday).

The 118 will provide a direct connection from Longniddry, Seton Sands, Port Seton and Prestonpans to Fort Kinnaird retail park, Edinburgh.

It will also provide a new link along Macbeth Moir Road and Pinkie Road to the retail park, as well as replacing the now-withdrawn Tesco T2 service – which ended today – between The Loan in Wallyford and the Musselburgh store.
