A BUS company has urged teens to be more considerate during adverse weather after a driver was pummelled with snowballs while on shift.

Having stopped in Darfield on Saturday, a Stagecoach driver on the X19 service - from Doncaster to Barnsley - opened the door for a group of young people who instead threw numerous snowballs before running away.

A spokesperson added: “Thankfully neither the driver nor any passengers were hurt but as a key worker helping people get where they need to go, it’s distressing to have to carry on driving people home while soaking wet.

“Please think of those helping the community at this difficult time and show kindness not unkind behaviour.”
