Man arrested for assaulting Warrington bus driver

A man has been arrested for assaulting a bus driver following a road rage incident in Warrington.

At around 6.30pm on Friday, a bus driver stopped on Newhaven Road, when the driver of a black Ford S-Max pulled up alongside him.

The driver of the Ford got out of his car and onto the bus. He then slapped the bus driver across the face before going back to his car and driving off.

The 31-year-old local man, has since been arrested on suspicion of assault. He remains in custody at this time and is assisting officers with their enquiries.

Inspector Lee Hillyard said: “This behaviour is abhorrent and completely unacceptable, and I’m pleased that the person responsible has been arrested.

“Bus drivers provide a public service to the communities in Warrington, and they deserve to feel safe and respected while at work.

“We’ll continue to work with our partners at Warrington Borough Council to ensure safety and support for those who help deliver public transport.”
