Drivers ignore student at stop

A wheelchair user says he was ‘forced to wet himself’ after waiting at a bus shelter in Nottinghamshire for an hour.

Student Ryan McDade said three Pronto buses failed to stop for him in Mansfield.

The 20-year-old said he felt ‘dehumanised’ by the drivers and that the experience was ‘humiliating’.

Bus operator Stagecoach East Midlands wrote to Mr McDade to apologise after reviewing CCTV (closed-circuit television) footage, adding: ‘We do not condone this type of misconduct.’
