Police were called to a bus stop at the entrance to Harrow Lodge Park this evening (Friday, July 20) after a number of teenagers were reportedly seen to threaten a bus driver with a knife.

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed officers were called at 6.20pm today to a report of a disturbance on a bus in Hornchurch Road.

A member of the public stated he was a passenger and saw a group of youths causing a disturbance.

The bus driver refused the group entry and one of them allegedly produced a weapon, believed to be a knife, and threatened the driver.

The group got off the bus.

No one was injured.

Enquiries are ongoing by officers to trace the bus and driver concerned.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is urged to contact police on 101.
