Stagecoach East Midlands (North)

I thought this a bit unusual. The Stagecoach leaflet covering the A1077 roadworks has contact information for Hull depot. This is despite the 350 Humber Fastcat legally being a Lincolnshire Road Car service and with Scunthorpe depot operating more journeys than Stagecoach's Foster Street Depot in Hull. What makes it even more surprising is that the leaflet also includes Grimsby depot operated service 450, which is nothing to do with Hull.

Maybe I am reading too much into this, but in the Hull Daily Mail last week the Stagecoach Hull commercial manager, John Donnelly, was referred to as commercial manager for Stagecoach East Midlands (North). So do Grimsby and Scunthorpe now come under the control of Hull, at least as far as commercial matters go?

Hull route plans for Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Skegness. This is nothing new. Another Commercial Manager is based in Lincoln and covers the remaining area. That's all.
