Police ‘too busy’ for crack addicts

‘A public-spirited busman thought he was doing his duty when he discovered two junkies on board were smoking crack – and drove straight to a police station.

But passengers who raced in to alert police were stunned when officers claimed they were too busy – and suggested they dial 999 and get someone else.

Driver Paul Gibbs, 48, waited 10 minutes and then reluctantly drove off when he realised no one was coming.

Bizarrely, police later sent two officers on HORSEBACK, who had little chance of catching the bus in the crowded inner-city streets. Disbelieving Paul said: “We were at one of Europe’s biggest police stations but no one could be bothered to come out and solve a crime right on their doorstep.’
