Police protect buses following attacks by yobs
13th March 2018
Plain clothed police officers have been riding on buses in Cheltenham following attacks by youths.
In recent weeks the Stagecoach West buses have had stones and bricks thrown at them in the Springbank area of the town.
This has forced the bus company to bring in some diversions to protect both staff and costumers from the attacks.
Police offices have been riding on the buses to try to catch those responsible for the attacks. They are also speaking to the parents of the youths believed to be involved.
They have also appealed for information about those responsible for the attacks.
Stagecoach West managing director Rupert Cox said the safety of staff and customers was of paramount importance to the bus company.
They are working with the police and Cheltenham Borough Council to try to resolve the situation.
