Stagecoach in Hastings cancels evening services after windows smashed Brighton News

Six buses had windows smashed on their evening services since last Saturday.

The spate of attacks happened in Bohemia Road, Hastings, which has prompted the company to cancel all services on the road after 4pm.

There were two incidents last Saturday, two last Sunday and two on Tuesday.


Joel Mitchell, managing director at Stagecoach South East, told BBC Radio Sussex: “We’re so gutted, the local teams have worked so hard.

“We have had a driver shortage. On Saturday we had two windows put through, Sunday we had two windows put through, Tuesday evening two windows put through. That’s six buses unavailable.

“We are doing everything we can to make sure we can look after our school children and people trying to access the hospital. There is the safety risk for our customers, there is parents with young children, elderly and the poorly.

“It is a tiny minority of people doing mindless vandalism and wrecking it for everybody. It’s difficult to keep our services on time, we’re having to divert services. This is a core route.”

The services which have been cancelled are the 99, 100, 101, 349 and the 1066.
