Night buses: Guards ‘are not needed’

Earlier this week, Unite the Union regional representative Nick Corbel said that previous operators Connex employed G4S Security to man late-night services and LibertyBus should be doing likewise.

However, the current bus operator said that in the 3½ years since it took over, there had been just two incidents involving a driver, and on both occasions the passenger was prosecuted.

LibertyBus also rejected Mr Corbel’s claims that he had contacted them to discuss the issue.
