Horror today here in Dudley as a Muslim woman, wearing a burka was stoned with cricket balls on a Wolverhampton to Dudley bus.
It has yet to be ascertained why the violence broke out, but one passenger told us:
"I think the Muslim woman expressed objections to a drunken passenger, stating in no uncertain terms that drinking was an unacceptable pastime. Things appeared to calm down following this outburst, but then some bloke sipping Earl Grey tea pitched in, demanding to know what was was wrong with cricket."
When the woman couldn't come up with a satisfactory response, the Earl Grey drinker produced a cricket ball and hurled it at the woman's head.
Several other passengers joined in, lobbing cricket balls at the poor, unfortunate muslim woman, who apparently squealed like a stuck pig.
The Muslim woman is reported to be a bit banged up.
The bus driver went off to get a bacon sandwich.
No arrests were made.
More as we get it.
