CCTV appeal after bus stolen from Nottingham city centre

Police have released images of a man they wish to trace after a bus was stolen.
A bus driver parked his empty vehicle in Peveril Drive near Castle Boulevard at 7.40 pm on Friday 4 August so that he could have a short break.

He returned at 8.05pm to find the vehicle had been stolen.

The bus is a purple Indigo Trent Barton bus which travels from Nottingham city centre to Long Eaton then Derby.

At 7.55pm, near Maid Marian Way, the stolen bus caused the driver of a silver Volkswagen Golf to veer out of its way causing the car’s tyres to burst.

The bus was recovered shortly afterwards.
