An investigation is underway in Cornwall after a couple started having sex on the top deck of a bus.
The incident happened onboard the number 18 as it left Truro on Monday evening. Passengers reportedly complained to the driver, before the couple, in their 20s, fled the scene.
Witness Jo Coleslaw said it's not something you expect to see on your way home from work:
You just don't expect to see or hear about a couple having sex on a bus in full view of everyone, especially at about 6pm in the evening.
There were elderly people on the bus and they were very, very shocked. I'd say they were in their late 20s and clearly intoxicated when they got off the bus.
Bus operator First Kernow say they are aware of the incident and are investigating.
