A BUS driver will face internal disciplinary action after an investigation into claims he urinated in front of a house in the middle of a busy street was concluded.

Bosses at bus giant Arriva revealed the three-week probe into allegations made by a member of the public that a driver on one of its routes had exposed himself while urinating in public outside a house in Goseley Avenue, Hartshorne, had been completed.

The concerned mother said she walked into her lounge only to be met with the ‘shock of her life’ when it happened.

Keith Myatt (pictured), regional marketing and communications manager for Arriva Midlands, spoke to the Mail following the conclusion of the investigation.

He said: “We undertook a full and thorough investigation into this matter.

“The driver in question was interviewed and the investigation has now been completed.

“Bosses have decided that the matter will be dealt with via the firm’s internal discipline practices.”

Mr Myatt also urged other people to make sure they get in touch about the service, whether their issue is ‘good or bad’.

He added: “We welcome any kind of feedback and would urge anyone and everyone to come forward.

“We want to hear from people with both good and bad opinions.”

The alleged incident took place at around 7.20pm on Thursday, May 22, in the South Derbyshire village.

The original investigation was delayed as the driver was on holiday.
