Earlier this year Yellow Buses decided to reroute their services to not serve the hub, citing anti-social behaviour problems as the reason.

In the summer alleyways were boarded up as authorities continued to look for ways to tackle crime issues.

Police said paths that cut through to the transport hub had been used as gathering points for criminal activity.

Criminal issues blighting the bus station include abuse, drugs offences and assaults.
