Police are continuing to investigate an assault on a bus driver in the city which happened more than six months ago.

On Monday, April 1, the driver of a Sanders coach, a man aged in his 50s, was driving the 44A bus from Anglia Square to Edward Street when two men stepped in front of the vehicle.

The bus driver swerved to avoid hitting them, before getting off the vehicle to talk to them.

He was then approached by another man, police said, who punched him in the face, knocking him unconscious.

The incident happened at about 4.40pm, and saw the driver rushed to hospital with a head injury.
