A union has provided a “road map” to immediately improve the safety of bus workers across Scotland after the death of an Elgin driver.

Unite, the union which represents thousands of bus workers, has written to Humza Yousaf in the aftermath of Keith Rollinson’s death following an assault while working in Elgin.

Unite is urging the First Minister and the Scottish Government to work with the union and bus companies to implement a series of safety measures to prevent anti-social and violent behaviour on buses.

They say the frequency of incidents of anti-social behaviour has increased since free bus travel scheme was extended across Scotland.

The road map includes increasing the presence of police officers or community wardens on buses, CCTV coverage on buses and at bus stations, panic buttons and other enhanced safety features installed on buses including internal locking systems.
