Police are searching for a man in a floppy hat following a ‘particularly nasty’ racially aggravated assault on a bus driver at Carnforth.

The incident, which happened on Saturday April 13 at about 10.20am, occurred as a rail replacement bus was ready to leave the station heading to Lancaster.

PC Allan Fernie said: “At Carnforth an elderly man boarded the bus service and, without warning or provocation, made unpleasant, racist, remarks to the bus driver and then attempted to punch him.
