Blind passenger hounded off bus because of his dog
by Paul Cassell
A driver told a blind cancer sufferer to get off his bus when a woman and her children became hysterical at the sight of his guide dog.
George Herridge, 71, told how the mum flew into a rage and shouted at him in a foreign language. A passenger explained she wanted him to get off the bus during the incident on May 20.
Mr Herridge, from Tern Close, Tilehurst, said: "Her child was kicking and screaming and someone off the bus told me her child was frightened of my dog. The driver said, 'Look mate, can't you get off?'
"I stood my ground. I had not done anything, my dog had not done anything and I was getting off the bus for no one."
