The man had got on a number 83 bus near Wembley and had put a mask on when the driver asked him to; however, when he sat down on the upper deck, he took the mask off.

When the driver told the passenger he would have to get off the bus if he refused to wear a mask, the man shouted at him and spat in his direction.
