Mindless vandalism
I see the little darlings are out in force today. Arriva in Durham have had three buses taken out of service for broken windows in as many hours.
This seems to be really bad lately and they have the brass necks to do it in broad daylight too.

How long before someone gets seriously injured?

The timed 22 won’t be running as the 23 had window done. 23 changes to the 22 at Sunderland and vice versa

Service 201 solo nearly had window put out but just missed the window and hit the side of bus

The fact that police seem to respond to late or not at all. Doesn't help the fact. It's absolutely stupid how much vandle goes on..I remember a while ago GNE being on Look North dur to buses in the Houghton area due to vandle and they didn't want to pull bus services out of the area

We've lost about 20,000 police officers in England and Wales since 2010, which doesn't help, but even with those 20,000, its impossible for them to be everywhere at once. Especially in an area as vast as County Durham.

As its likely to be kids, they'll have legged it as soon as the brick or stones have been thrown, so it becomes a cat and mouse game for the police.

GNE have pulled buses out of Houghton before and I believe Arriva have somewhere on Teesside too. To be honest, as much as its a disruption to those that need the services, it's probably the only thing that is going to apply enough leverage to deal with the problem.
