I despair of adults who lack such basic communication skills that they have to call the Police to resolve minor disputes. Not really a good use of Police time.

Possibly (we are not told) the bus driver called the police if the passenger refused to get off the bus or started being abusive (which I have heard too many times before)

Crumbs! That is serious!

Seriously folks, it says there was an inspector on board, so he, or she, would have initiated the call, rather than the driver.

As I had forgotten my Oyster card in my weekend jacket early on Monday morning, I had paid the 280 bus driver with cash which was received with a grunt and I was then ignored to the point that he did not even print my ticket. So, he pocketed the cash i.e Fraud.
How about that for a story about the 280 bus and the rude and miserable s...d who drove it; at least he did not try and kill us as some of the drivers who regularly enjoy breaking suddently and playing temping bowling with its passengers.

Police probably called by the inspector whose job is to protect revenue.
