Bus passenger knocks ticket inspector unconscious

National Express is offering a £1,000 reward to help identify a man who launched an attack on two bus ticket inspectors.

The passenger did not have a valid ticket for the journey in Birmingham on 24 January, and so was asked to leave the bus.

Upon leaving the vehicle, he attacked two ticket inspectors, leaving one unconcsious and the other injured.

Both men needed hospital treatment, and now National Express West Midlands released two pictures of a man who is wanted by police in connection with the incident, reports the Birmingham Mail.

The man was described as mixed race, and was wearing a blue Parka with a fur-trimmed hood.
