Police are looking to trace this man after a bus driver was racially abused.

The victim was subjected to racial abuse by a passenger in West Bridgford around 10.15pm on 4 April 2024.

PC Matthew Holden, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a completely uncalled for attack on a bus driver who was just trying to do his job.

“There is absolutely no excuse for anyone to act in the manner displayed in this incident.

“As a force, we take a zero-tolerance approach to hate crime in all its forms, including racism, and will always look to put anyone found guilty before the courts.

“We would ask that anyone who recognises the man in this picture contacts us, as we would like to speak to him in relation to this incident.

“Any information can be left by calling the police on 101, quoting incident 238 of 9 April 2024, or with Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
