Coach driver suffers broken ankle after being ‘dragged from bus’ and attacked in Nottingham

Police have released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to after a coach driver was assaulted.

The National Express driver suffered a broken ankle when he was attacked at a bus shelter in Station Street, Nottingham city centre.

Two men became involved in an argument with the driver as they attempted to board the coach without a valid ticket or enough money to pay for one.

They dragged the driver from the bus and assaulted him.

The incident took place on 12 June 2022 between 4.35am and 4.50am when the coach, which was bound for Birmingham, was stopped outside Trent House.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident 138 of 12 June 2022.
