    We call them stones on this side of the Atlantic. Or was that band that came out of Dartford called the Rolling Rocks?

    Well done to the driver on this 96 bus for his response to yet another dangerous mindless incident which could have endangered lives to the driver the passengers on the bus and other road users and pedestrians if the bus had an accident.

    This is a very serious incident which cannot be taken lightly. These idiots need to be caught and dealt with by Police and Courts. Then their parents and the culprits need to pay damages to Stagecoach London for damage to the bus and for the time the bus is out of service and cannot by used out of their earnings or benefits. This needs to be on top of any other fines or punishment issued by the Courts for this mindless crime.

    Does not matter if it is stones or rocks this kind of behaviour is stupid, dangerous and not acceptable under any circumstances. .

    Criminal damage is no laughing matter. If a stone had gone through the window and hit the bus driver it could have been a very serious incident.
