Facemask row bus passenger ‘spat at woman’

Face-off: Footage shows bus row

POLICE are investigating reports a man who refused to wear a mask on a bus spat at a woman after a foul tirade.

Another passenger, who filmed the bust-up on a Stagecoach bus in Hull on Tuesday evening, said the man was seen shouting at a woman across the aisle.

They said the row began when he criticised the NHS after being challenged for not covering his face. A woman took him to task and in reply he boasted he had been jailed for beating up women.

The video later shows the man slam the driver’s compartment on his way out. A woman claimed he spat at her and he is seen kicking the doors of the bus.

Humberside Police are investigating. Stagecoach East Midlands said most customers were following the mask rule.
