The man was told 'Shut your face – you got on the wrong bus' - a driver has since been suspended.

A bus driver has been suspended after being filmed ranting at a passenger.

Epilepsy sufferer Shea McSorley, 24, boarded the number 101 Cumfybus on Wednesday shortly before 5pm at Queens Square, on his way home to Walton.

He said there was a confrontation after the driver turned up his radio, sang loudly and shouted at a woman.

During part of the confrontation the bus driver left his seat and walked down the aisle to remonstrate with Mr McSorley.

During the argument the unnamed bus driver told him: “Shut your face – you got on the wrong bus. Shut your mouth, don’t be giving me grief.

“You’re going to make a complaint about me? Do I look bothered? You listen to me, this is my bus.”

Cumfybus transport manager James Mitchell confirmed to the ECHO that he was looking into the complaint.

He said: “A driver has been suspended and an investigation is now being carried out.”

The few bad spoil it for the good drivers out there.
But in my experience you can get rude bus drivers.

I always say thanks when i get off the bus.

I would be very concerned about a driver being sacked on the evidence of 3 minutes mobile phone footage. If I was scared of a driver I would get away quickly and not stand taking pictures.
I think that this driver has either been set up or driven to distraction by this passengers actions.

They do, but can only be used as evidence for whatever the reason is for having them, as described on a notice within the bus.

ie a camera that is for 'passenger safety' - footage should not be used as evidence that the driver was smoking in his cab, for instance.

Not all busses have cctv. It costs about £1000 per bus to install so some of the smaller companies haven't got all their busses cammed-up yet.
