A bus driver has been suspended after he was filmed appearing to masturbate to porn on the top deck of a bus.

The footage shows a middle-aged man appearing to pleasure himself, while leaning over seats next to a window, on the 123 bus to Ilford, while parked in Buller Road, Wood Green.

The clip, which was filmed by a passer-by, lasts for about 90 seconds before the man finishes and pulls his trousers up.

The video of the incident, which is believed to have taken place over the weekend, came to the attention of Transport for London (TfL) after it was uploaded on Monday to YouTube.

A TfL spokesman said: “We have immediately contacted the bus operator, Arriva, and they confirmed that they have suspended the driver while the incident is investigated.”
