Yesterdays incident on a bus on Old Oak Road, witnessed it would seem by several readers, was not as some were reporting a stabbing or knife related. I have been on to the local police and in fact it was what sounds like a fairly mundane issue of a drunk and rowdy male passenger who was escorted off the bus by police after the driver called for help.
The incident was recorded at just after 5pm yesterday which accords with the time some of you say you saw the bus surrounded by police vehicles. So I hope, on this occasion at least, this puts minds at rest. We haven’t had another serious incident - but after the murder of Jaabe Roberts on Askew Road this summer it's perfectly understandable that this was what minds started to think about.
