A YOUTH jumped out the top window of a bus being escorted by police.

Video footage captures the moment chaos erupted while police were escorting a bus-load of children back from a house party in Hangleton on Friday night.

One teen can be seen jumping out a top window, which had already been smashed, while others rushed off the lower deck and out onto Sackville Road, Hove.

The Argus:

The boss of Brighton and Hove buses has spoken out following the arrest of a male for criminal damage.

Managing director Martin Harris said: “What a senseless act of vandalism to wilfully damage one of our buses, buses that people in this city rely on every day to get around.

“Our Police Liaison Officer and our other colleagues always work closely to support the police in these situations and we will, of course, supply police with CCTV of the incident.”

Police dispersed a house party in Hangleton at around 9.20pm on Friday night.

Police Liaison Officer, PC Jackson, who works for the bus company and Sussex Police on public transport issues, supported police by helping people leave the area on a 5B bus.

Multiple police units, including PC Jackson, followed the bus as it travelled.
