A gang of youths attempted to set fire to a First Bus in Glasgow before running off as cops launch probe.
The Service 75 bus was attacked by youths on Ashgill Road around 8.20pm on Wednesday evening.
The thugs attempted to start a fire on the top deck using newspapers before the force was called to the scene in Milton.
The youths made off after the disturbance, sparking a police probe.
A spokesperson for the transport firm First Bus condemned the attack and the "totally unacceptable" rise in antisocial behaviour.
They said: “We can confirm an incident took place on a service 75 bus travelling on Ashgill Road on September 21, 2023.
"An attempt was made to set fire to newspapers on the top deck of the bus by a group of young passengers and the emergency services were called to the incident immediately.
“Actions such as these are totally unacceptable and it is yet another example of the continuing rise in anti-social behaviour we are seeing, not only in Glasgow but across the UK.
“Our services play a huge role in providing access to employment, education, social and leisure opportunities.
"We will not tolerate this sort of behaviour or the disruption caused to our passengers and staff.
“We’re working closely with the police as part of their enquiries to catch those responsible.”
A spokesperson for Police Scotland added: "We were made aware of a group causing a disturbance at Ashgill Road, Glasgow, around 8.20pm on Wednesday, 21 September, 2023.
