IMAGES of a very NON-Magnificent Seven who are suspected of bus crime and assault in Newham have been issued by police.
They are wanted in connection with incidents last year that included smashing windows, criminal damage, graffiti with one drunken passenger wanted for attacking a female driver.
The appeal is made through the Safer Transport Command's Operation BusTag, a proactive team who work together with a CCTV Investigation Unit, using on-bus Closed Circuit Television to arrest and bring to justice individuals who have committed criminal damage to the buses.
Since BusTag's inception in late 2004 it has tripled its arrest rate of offenders of bus criminal damage which costs the bus companies millions of pounds in repairs every year. In total it is more than 3,000 arrests
