Last night, a First spokesman said: " Following two acts of vandalism on Yew Lane, Ecclesfield, for the safety of our passengers and drivers, we have reluctantly taken the decision to divert our service 20 via Wordsworth Avenue in both directions. Apologies.

"The incidents have been reported to South Yorkshire Police."
