Yobs hang off London bus and ‘terrorise drivers’ as cops make arrests

Gang of youths terrorise driver of London bus

A London bus was ground to a halt in London as footage captured from a resident shows the moment teens ambushed the vehicle and “terrorised” other motorists. The incident took place in Wembley, West London, where onlookers looked in horror as the unsuspecting double-decker became the target of an ‘attack’.

Met Police officers were called to the scene, in Engineers Way, on May 20 after 7pm where two arrests were made. One on suspicion of violent disorder and the other on suspicion of an assault on police. Officers had been responding to reports of a number of youths “engaging in disorder” and “damaging vehicles”, the police say.

The footage captured shows yobs running towards a London bus, blocking it from driving as others climbed onto the back of the bus, hanging off it.

The Twitter user who filmed the action, @Nikita011097, said she had “never seen anything like it” since living in the area and claimed it looked like a “planned meet up”.

One social media user, @munnipenny, who also witnessed the incident, wrote: “The pictures don’t truly reflect the reality of how awful it was. The boys were so lucky they didn’t get hurt and I really hope there was no damage to any cars. Not big. Not clever. Very sad.”

Footage from residents filming in nearby flats also showed young males dancing in front of a purple Ocado delivery van to bring it to a stop.

They appear to punch and kick the side of the van before shouting at the driver’s window. Other videos uploaded show groups of teens lobbing objects at a police van as it drives away from the scene.

There have been no reports of any serious injuries, but police are “still making inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the disorder”.
