A bus driver lost his temper and came to blows with two passengers on the number 89 bus in Bexleyheath - and ended up rolling around on the floor.

Bus driver David Newstead, 43, from Landseer Road, Gravesend, ended up in a fight with two young men after an argument about bus fares at Geddes Place in Bexley on Thursday March 27 2014.

In the video, Mr Newstead can be seen adjusting the wing mirror of his bus before he is approached by Tyler Belgrave-Breeds, from Erith, and Sean Dickson, from Dartford.

The pair of 23-year-olds appear to taunt the driver before he turns round and give chase. The argument soon turns nasty and they all end up rollling around on the pavement and trading blows.

Mr Newstead plead guilty to affray at Bexley Magistrates’ Court and was handed a conditional discharge for six months.

Belgrave-Breeds and Dickson were both found guilty of affray and are due to be sentenced in mid-November.
