Police have now released a picture of a man they want to speak following the incident on a bus in Shoreham at 7.30pm on Wednesday June 5.
The mother and son were on the free shuttle bus between Coronation Gardens and Shoreham Beach when she asked a male passenger, who was shouting and swearing while on the phone, not to swear in front of her child.

Councillors have approved twenty million pound plans for a power plant in Shoreham in Sussex despite protests. Edgeley Green Power says it will create ninety jobs and generate power using renewable energy. But concerns have been raised about the smell and air pollution.
– Councillor Pete West, Chair of the Environment and Sustainability committee
We are keen to see the development of renewable energy generation on this site, but any renewable solution has to be genuinely sustainable. We objected to this proposal for a few reasons. There’s a risk this will exacerbate our city’s air quality problems, and many local residents have expressed concerns about the potential use of palm oil, as world demand for this product is contributing to rainforest destruction.
– Councillor Pete West, Brighton and Hove
We are urging Adur District Council, with the support of the Port Authority to find ways of ensuring that only officially recognised, and genuinely sustainably produced renewable fuels would be used.”
