I use the Leytonbuses from time to time, so watch out. This was in a 2005 article but it pays to be vigilent.
I will have to cycle more now.
“GANGS are operating on bus routes through Leytonstone and have carried out a spate of muggings.
Nasreen Akhtar said her 16-year-old son was grabbed round the neck and had his pocket searched by two men on the top deck of the number 257 bus.
The Warwick School, Walthamstow, pupil suffered cuts and bruises to his head as he came home from school last Monday afternoon. The men, both described as 18, struck near the Green Man roundabout.
Ms Akhtar said CCTV cameras on the bus were not working.
“He was a bit shocked and really upset which is natural after going through something like that,” she said.”
It is horrific that the CCTV wasn’t working on the bus and there were comments from the bus company.
