An 11-year-old schoolgirl was forced to buy an adult bus ticket because she did not have proof that she was under 16.
Megan Harris tried to purchase a £7 weekly child's pass in York when the driver of the bus, run by First, asked for prof, even though she was wearing her school uniform.
According to the Daily Mail, Megan had nothing to show and was forced to buy the adult ticket for £5 extra, leaving her with no lunch money for the day.
Her father Steve told the Daily Mail: "Obviously the bus driver was just having a bad day - the bus company have said it's up to a driver's discretion to judge a child's age.
"I can kind of see their point if it's a pupil who's 15 or 16, perhaps they could look like an adult, but Megan is by no means tall for her age."
A First spokesman told the Mail that the matter will be investigated.
