Police are trying to track down a man seen on CCTV after a bus driver was punched in the face on Regent Street.
The attack happened on Friday 13 September at around 8:30pm on the route 23 bus as it terminated at Regent Street. The suspect was told he would need another ticket to continue but became abusive, before punching the driver several times.
In a few hours Regent Street will welcome in the festive season by switching on the Christmas lights. Retailers have just begun showcasing their Winter collections on a large catwalk on Burlington Street, before a concert later this evening.
The show will kick off at 5pm and will include performances from Leona Lewis, Passenger, Eliza Doolittle, Emma Bunton and Melanie C, Imagination, MKS, Gabrielle, Richard & Adam, Only The Young and Jahmene Douglas.
Police are appealing for a cyclist involved in a fatal collision with a pedestrian to come forward. The collision happened on Thursday 25th July on the southbound carriageway of Regent Street at the junction of New Burlington Street.
Initially, both the pedestrian and cyclist appeared uninjured and spoke to each other at the scene.But two days later, the pedestrian, David Purkis from West Wickham, suffered a fatal stroke.Police say they now want to speak to the cyclist, and have released a CCTV image of him.
Detective Constable Matt Hopgood of Catford Traffic Garage said: "I would appeal to the cyclist and any witnesses to the collision to contact police. Any witness could hold vital information into what happened."
