An NHS worker has told of her terror after she was attacked by ‘out of control’ yobs on her bus journey home.

Diane Hawthorn had just finished her shift at St John’s Hospital when the feral gang, aged between 12-13, began hurling slurs at passengers and smashed an upstairs window on the vehicle at around 7pm on April 17.

The group were asked to leave the bus by the driver, but confronted Diane after making their way downstairs. The 40-year-old, from Whitburn, claims they then smashed another window next to her face and pulled her off the bus by her hair.

Speaking to the Record, Diane said: “I was on the bus on my way back from work and there were young folk upstairs making a racket and breaking stuff.

“They broke a window and were shouting insults out the window.
