Pole lodges in bus window

A bus in Oxford, Oxfordshire, was at the centre of a ‘frightening’ incident when a metal object — thrown from a bridge — lodged in its window.

The Oxford Bus Company double-decker had been travelling through Blackbird Leys to its depot in Cowley on Saturday 14th November.

Managing director Phil Southall said: ‘Thankfully no one was injured in this mindless act of vandalism.’

The bus was not in service when the pole struck the upper-deck window, piercing the glass.
