Yellow Buses to withdraw services from part of Kinson after 'air gun' fired at bus

YELLOW Buses is withdrawing services from part of North Bournemouth after an air gun or BB gun was fired at one of its vehicles.

The company said it would not be running down Montgomery Avenue, which links West Howe and Kinson, from 6pm today, Monday April 7.

It said there had been 10 incidents in the last year of objects being thrown at buses.

They ranged from eggs to stones. In one incident, a bed was pushed into the road in front of a bus.

A spokesman said: “Last night, it was thought an air gun or BB gun was used to fire pellets at a bus. The damage caused was not significant and has been repaired.”

A statement from Yellow Buses gave details of the withdrawal of service.

It said: "Following a further incident of a missile being thrown at one of our vehicles in Montgomery Ave, Kinson, on Sunday April 6, damaging the bus, we have decided to divert bus services away from the road involved.

"The following diversion will apply to services 5b and 2b on a daily basis from 1800 hours until further notice, commencing today, Monday April 7: service 5b in both directions will no longer serve Poole Lane, Moore Ave, Cunningham Crescent or Montgomery Ave. 5b buses will operate direct between Kinson Rd (East Howe Lane) and Kinson via Kinson Rd and Wimborne Rd. Service 2b will follow the route of the 5a between Moore Avenue and Columbia Rd.

"Services 5a and 2a are unaffected. Alternative buses operate along Moore Ave and Poole Lane.”

It added: “Decisions like this are never taken lightly, but we are not prepared to operate where mindless vandalism of this nature, which could have far reaching consequences, is occurring. We would urge anyone who has any information to contact the police.

“The safety of our passengers and staff is paramount. We cannot give a timescale of when these services might resume as we have to be totally satisfied that the problem has been tackled and that robust measures are in place to avoid any future incidents."

Kinson South councillor Ben Grower said he urged anyone with information to go the police.

“I think it is such a shame that decent, law-abiding people have to suffer because of the actions of a few mindless kids,” he said.

“I know the police are already doing all they can to find those responsible.

"I can quite understand the decision of the bus company to stop the service, as they won’t want to put any employee in danger, but I do hope that it is restored in the future once everything has calmed down.

"I’d like to take the opportunity to urge anyone who knows about this incident to contact the police.”

Are the people who allow their kids out and do things like this complete morons ?
Because of the behaviour of a few brainless idiots, the good people in the area have to suffer.
But of course those who do these mindless acts won't suffer will they, they never do.

If the silly children have nothing better to do on the fist day of the school holidays than fire silly guns at buses they really need help. Do they not think about the driver? The people on the bus? The fact that they might want to catch the bus? They're going to have some walking to do if they want to go anywhere now. Shame for the other folk who use the bus service.

Take your good point a little further and you will find the people who allow their feral kids to be out doing this sort of thing were usually themselves feral kids who were brought up by similar kids.....and that is how the current UK child benefit/tax credit fuelled anti-social juggernaut chugs along and keeps on getting bigger.

unfortunately it wouldnt matter what activities are put in place for kids like these, they will always be anti social brats. almost certainly the parents are nowhere to be seen, rarely see thier kids, dont care really, as long as they havent got to spend time with them. as for buses being withdrawn, it probably wont affect the families of these kids, as they probably have thier own transport to get to the bingo or the pub. so why would they give a hoot for other people.
if, and it seems to be a big if, these kids are ever caught, the parents should be hauled into court. the child benefits stopped for a year.
parents ( i use the term loosely ) who allow thier offspring to roam round this estate, should be named and shamed.

Don’t close the curtains at night and ignore do something about it. Hassle the police, the council and politicians and anyone else. You all know who the neighbours from hell are so name and shame. glendower2909

Yawn. Shitminto's knocking Council House dwellers again. Yes there are some morons who live on council estates & feral kids. It's not a preserve of the poor though, although some would have you believe otherwise.
I do accept that there are decent people who live on Council estates. I have friends who reside on these estates. Unfortunately, they also carry the rouge element of society.

I recall three years ago I decided to have a stroll around the nearest Council estate after having to wait for my car to be serviced. I was walking innocently along the pavement (or what was left if it) when some 'gargoyle' who was leaning against her gate and for no apparent and justifiable reason shouted at me "What the '.uck' are you looking at"?.
.
I replied "I'm not awfully sure". She had hair like fuse wire and stank of body odour, covered in tattoos, thick as two short planks, fag stuck in her mouth with smoke bellowing out of every oravice in her body. This woman, if one could call it a woman, should have been shot or gassed.
.
She then retorted "there is nothing wrong with us round here". I replied "I don't recall saying that there was"!! "is there something wrong with you"??
This 'reptile' was just out to create confrontation for no reason. I just walked away baffled and confused.

The 50's and 60's were a long time ago. Those that your mother taught would be pensioners now !! Or are you suggesting that we have a feral group of OAP's roaming the streets ?

You have obviously never been near the place or you would realise that your comment has just insulted about 70 % of the population of West Howe. Just ask any local estate agent exactly how many properties on the estate are still actually owned by the council. ( perish the thought !!!!!)
The days of it being a council estate are long gone.

It makes me laugh how people still peddle the myths without having a clue about the true situation.

I am curious to know if the ten other incidents mentioned in the original story all happened on this estate or whether it was the amount across the whole conurbation ?

Why is it assumed that it is a Council estate? There always have been a number of private properties in the area and even more since Thatcher sold off the council stock! By the way, an arsonist who used to regularly set fire to the two nature reserves nearby came from a private home on the estate!

Why not move?

Everyone has choices, whether they work hard at school, get a good job, earn money, save money, buy a house etc etc.

Nobody forced you to live in West Howe
35 years ago I lived in a cold , very damp flat in Boscombe that gave my liittle boy asthma. I was given a flat in West Howe but I had no other choice.It is like an alien nation.

There are very few police officers available because the force is going skint. Looking to buddy up with another force but because we (Dorset) are so skint nobody wants us.
Another great Government policy - destroy local emergency services why the banks, rich and those good for nothing people who do not want to work bleed the responsible, honest citizens dry.

There was a police station in Elliott Road.
There was one in Gort Road.

Re Henry Brown Centre, it is still there, but my comments were spoken in general, across all conurbations. However, there is no activity in Youth Clubs as such as it was in the 60s and 70s, and beyond. They have become places of congregation, so why sit in side doing nothing, when we could be out causing problems is their response.

With the threat of closure of some Police Stations, or the reduced opening times, I doubt if there ever was going to be a Police Station at the old Swimming Baths area at South Kinson Drive.

The old swimming baths area is next to a nature reserve which has heathland and therefore there are restrictions as to what can be built there.Don't forget that there used to be a Police shop in Kinson but it closed for financial reasons.

Lol. When I was living in the East End a few years ago the tube driver told us all to duck going through Leyton because of kids with air guns shooting at the train. All trains kept running. . Yellow bunch of wimps!
This is a privately run company, why should they run buses through an area where they will like be damage to their property, and even their drivers or passengers.

How does this even relate to being a wimp?

I feel sorry for the people in the area who rely on the buses for transport, but the company is not obliged to provide this service.
