EYMS (East Yorkshire Motor Services) Group has agreed a possible sale of its Manchesterbased Finglands coach operation.

EYMS Chairman Peter Shipp told CBW: “I can tell you that we have had two or three offers – and that we have accepted the best one – all subject to contract.

“We told the coach drivers this week as we hope that if the deal does go through the buyer will take on all the coaching staff and we wanted to give them some reassurance. The prospective buyer has to remain unidentified at present I’m afraid. The buyer’s solicitors are currently undertaking the ‘due diligence’.

“We are of course still awaiting OFT clearance for the otherwise agreed sale of the bus operation to First.”
