Police are investigating after a bus was reportedly shot at in broad daylight on a busy Birmingham road.

A small bullet-sized hole with splintered cracks leading away from it could be seen in the reinforced glass doors on the bus.

The number 50 bus was taken out of service following the incident near to the Alcester Road junction with Tindal Street in Moseley , at about 2.40pm on Saturday.

It is not clear how many people were on board the bus or whether it was moving at the time.

Kris Carr, a 30-year-old musician, said he thought only a “powerful” weapon could have caused the damage.

“I saw it pulled over and thought it had broken down, but the driver said something had been shot at the bus,” he said.

“It went through two thick panes of glass so it’s not a BB gun it was something more powerful.

“The driver was quite shaken up.”

No-one was injured in the incident which is being investigated by West Midlands Police.

A spokesman said: “We are currently examining CCTV footage from the area to find out how this happened. There is no evidence of a shot being fired at this stage.

“The incident is being classed as criminal damage by unknown means.”

A National Express West Midlands spokesman said: “We can confirm a window was broken on a number 50 bus. The incident was reported to the police and we will help them in their investigations.”
