Police are searching for a group of three men after they pushed a man in his 60s off a bus in Ipswich.

The victim was pushed from an Ipswich Buses number 10 on Defoe Road at 18.05 on Thursday, according to the BBC.

He is in a critical condition at Ipswich Hospital and is said to be suffering serious head injuries.

Police have appealed for anyone who saw the men, described as white, of medium build, and around 5ft 7ins or 5ft 8ins tall, to contact them.

Meanwhile, just last month, a Bradford bus driver refused to leave his protected cab as a group of five yobs kicked and punched a pensioner to the floor in front of him - because of 'health and safety' reasons.

Fred Gilroy, 68, was set-upon by the youths after he confronted them over their unruly behaviour, which included shooting him in the ear with a pellet gun.
