A man could have been blinded or hit in the head after he claims he was shot at on a bus.

Lee Walkden, 30, of Lancaster, was travelling through Crag Bank when the window next to him shattered, showering glass everywhere.

The window had a large hole in it, as if from an air rifle or gun shot.

He said: “I’d just dropped my missus off at work and I was going back to Lancaster, it was about half ten at night.

“I was lucky I was on my phone at the time texting my lass as I was looking down.

“The glass would have hit me in the face but I had my hat on so it hit the peak of my cap , otherwise it would have hit me in the eye.It could have been a lot worse but everyone was unharmed.”

A Stagecoach spokesman said: “On Tuesday September 29, the driver of our Service 55 from Lancaster to Carnforth was informed by a passenger of a broken window.

“CCTV on the bus was unable to identify the cause of the broken window.

“There were four passengers on board at the time and no one was injured.”
