A teenager was threatened on a Stagecoach bus in Lancaster.

Police said that a 17-year old girl was riding on the top deck of the 2A bus travelling on Torrisholme Road, Lancaster when an older woman, who had been sat at the back of the top deck came and sat in front of her.

The woman then aimed a torrent of abuse at the teenager, threatened her and instructed the teenager to get off the bus.

The teenager then tried to get away and ring the bus bell but the woman squared up to her and threatened her again before the teenager managed to get away and get off the bus.

The incident was captured on the on-board CCTV system and it left the teenager very upset and shaken up until several hours after the event.

She had missing teeth and was wearing a black and pink, red or orange hooded top, blue jeans and black boots.

The incident happened at 1.45pm on Tuesday, March 18.
