The operator said buses have been on the "receiving end of attacks" this week, resulting in a number of windows being shattered.

Buses will not be going to Park Avenue, Devonport after 7pm until further notice. This means 5/5A/21/21A/34 services won't be running tonight (October 15).

A spokesperson for Citybus said: "Buses will divert in both directions using Albert Road - Devonport Road - Fore Street.
