Bus operator Whippet Coaches is calling for anyone with information to come forward “before someone is seriously injured or killed”.

The incident took place on Saturday (March 13) at around 4pm. No passengers were on board at the time and no one was injured.

A statement from Whippet Coaches released on social media said: “Once again over the weekend we found ourselves subject to a further stone throwing incident on the guideway resulting in a broken window, if anyone has any information please contact Cambridgeshire Police ref 35/14716/21 before someone is seriously injured or killed. Thank you.”

A spokeswoman for Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: “We have received a report of criminal damage to a bus in Cambridge.

“It was reported that at about 4pm on Saturday (13 March), a group of boys on bicycles threw a rock and smashed a window of the bus while it was travelling along Hills Road.

“No passengers were on board at the time and no one was injured as a result.

“No arrests have been made.

“Anyone with information should contact us via web-chat or 101 quoting 35/14716/21.”

Two years ago - in November 2019 - the windows of four buses on the guided busway in Cambridgeshire were shattered when objects were thrown at them, leaving passengers showered in glass.

Nobody was injured, but passengers were left shocked as the glass broke around them.
