A bus carrying people with dementia was attacked with bricks in Derry.

Young people targeted the Fold Day Care vehicle as it travelled along Eastway on Monday afternoon.

The windscreen was cracked and some passengers became distressed but no-one was injured.

Pauline Spence, a care assistant who was driving the bus, said she and a colleague were covered in glass after one brick hit the corner of the windscreen.

Ms Spence said: "I was so shocked, really shocked. So I just got away as fast as I could."
