A woman defrauded a bus company by altering tickets to allow her to travel for free on buses in Crawley.

The 18-year-old from Maidenbower, Crawley, admitted to fraud by false representation after she had altered the dates on bus tickets on March 11 and 25 so she did not have to pay on the Metrobus.

She accepted a police caution.

A Metrobus spokesman said: "Metrobus has a zero tolerance approach towards ticket fraud on our buses. We will always take further action against anyone attempting to commit such acts."
