Salisbury Reds head of communications, Nikki Honer, said:

"We've had lots of feedback over the last year, from those who need to travel on Boxing Day for shopping and also to visit relatives in hospital.

"We realise it's an important shopping day - and of course we want to help people stay in touch with loved ones. We are happy to respond once again by running special Red 1 and, for the first time, Red 2 additional services across Salisbury throughout Boxing Day.

"The Salisbury Reds team is very much looking forward to a fun but peaceful Christmas 2019 - and we hope our special timetable will help local passengers enjoy their festive period too."
