Paint-bomb thrown at Derry Ulsterbus driver

A bus driver has been left badly shaken after a paint-bomb was thrown at him in the Hazelbank area of Derry.

A youth threw the bottle into the open door of the bus on Monday night.

The bottle did not break, but the driver was left covered in paint.

Translink withdrew its service in the area after the incident and said it will do so again if buses are attacked.

Local Councillor, Billy Page, spoke to the PSNI yesterday, and he confirmed there were a number of incidents in the area over the past couple of days.
