First South Yorkshire said this afternoon, Saturday, December 28, that trouble on Hucklow Road in Firth Park meant buses were being diverted via Barnsley Road and Stubbin Lane.

The operator has failed to respond when asked for details about the nature of the anti-social behaviour.

Bus services in Sheffield have previously had to be diverted due to vehicles coming under attack from yobs hurling stones and missiles.

In October, following incidents in High Green and Gleadless Valley, police warned culprits they would be arrested as their actions were endangering motorists and other members of the public.

The previous month, police in the south west of the city told how one of the young people stopped following complaints about people pelting buses with missiles was just 12 years old.
