Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced that the furlough scheme will be extended until September.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak visited the Harrogate Bus Company‘s depot in Starbeck today.

Mr Sunak arrived at about 9am to support Harrogate and Knaresborough Conservative MP Andrew Jones.

After the two looked round the depot, he briefly answered questions from a pool of journalists, including the Stray Ferret.

Mr Sunak, who lives 35 miles away in Richmond, previously visited Harrogate in August last year when he went to Busy Bees nursery ay Hornbeam Park.

The Harrogate Bus Company is owned by French firm Transdev. Last year it placed orders worth £21 million for 39 new buses.

We will provide further details and photos of the visit later today.
