Police were called to an argument on a bus in Welwyn Garden City


A bus driver called the police after a row between passengers travelling from Welwyn Garden City.

Police were called to the 601 Uno bus, which had stopped in Stanborough Road, at 6.08pm yesterday.

An argument had broken out between passengers.

Officers spoke to those involved and offered them advice, but no offences had been committed.

An eyewitness on the bus said: “A man, who was about four feet tall, ran downstairs on the bus and started shouting and swearing at some people upstairs, who I think were young teenagers.

“He was yelling at them and he claimed they had spat at him and tried to take his jacket.

“The bus driver called the police and the man started shouting at him instead. The driver pulled over and let him off just as a police car showed up and about six or seven officers.

“Everyone on the bus seemed very uncomfortable and no one was making eye contact with the man.”
