The nasty mood spreads

A bus driver of a McGill’s bus in Glasgow has been arrested over claims he verbally abused a young gay couple and barred them from his bus on Friday 10 June.

The driver is reported to have sworn and told the two 20-year-old male passengers that “people like you” should not be on the McGill’s bus. Police Scotland confirmed a 46-year-old man was arrested under a law that deals with homophobic offences.

The couple are reported to have described sitting in shock during the journey, but said they challenged the driver as they got off, and claimed he told them they were banned from using McGill’s buses in future and that he refused to let them on his bus a few days later.
