Window smashed in 'dangerous and reckless' attack on Grangemouth bus

Police have described an attack during which a bus window was smashed by stones in Grangemouth as "dangerous and reckless".

Officers said the H4 bus was targeted while it was travelling on Bowhouse Road, near the junction with Kingseat Avenue, at about 18:20 on Saturday.

The rear window was broken, causing more than £1,000 worth of damage.

Central Scotland Police said they were keen to speak to two passengers who were on the bus at the time.

PC Frazer McFadyen, who is investigating the incident, said: "This was a very dangerous and reckless act of vandalism which took place in an area that would have been busy at the time.

"The consequences could have been much more serious, and what may have been thought as a bit of fun was a serious incident that could have affected other road users as well as the passengers.

"I am appealing for the two passengers who were on the bus, and anyone who may have seen the incident, to call us so we can identify the vandals and bring them to justice."
