Recently my son who has a learning difficulty was travelling on a number one Darwen bus service in day time hours, going through Ewood.

He was sat behind the driver when youths hurled a stone through the bus window right where my son was sitting.

As well as being covered in glass, the stone caught him in the hip.

I could not thank the bus driver personally at the time, but I did go down to report it to the Transdev staff.

When you think there could have been a baby on board or elderly person that could have been hit.

The driver got every one off and asked my son if he was okay.

These mindless youths don’t realise action like this could kill or maim someone.

My son was quite calm about it afterwards and it was reported to police.
