AN angry bus passenger threw a punch and verbally abused a driver of a double decker.

Police are hunting the man who got on the Arriva 268 bus at Balme Road, in Cleckheaton, travelling to Dewsbury at around 3.36pm on December 5.

The man, who was captured on the bus CCTV, launched a tirade of abuse towards the 50-year-old driver for ‘no apparent reason’ according to police.

The man then threw a punch at the driver, but missed, before getting off the bus at Dewsbury and District Hospital.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward, and have released an image of the man. Anyone with information should contact PC 6937 Martin Walsh at the Spen NPT on 01924 206357.
