“I spoke to one of the managers at Translink and he tells me that there were several passengers aboard the bus at the time and although nobody was hurt they were very badly shaken,” he said. “This is absolute thuggery and those behind it have no place in our community. “As well as potentially hurting people, or worse, this type of idiocy gives areas a bad name and ends up with services being withdrawn from them. “I would urge anyone with any information on who was behind this attack to go to the police or a community representative.
