Coach driver 'put children's lives at risk' by stopping on busy Portsmouth road – to pray
by Tom Cotterill
Furious parents have claimed their children's lives were put at risk when a bus driver stopped abruptly on a busy main road – to pray.
Some 50 children, parents and teachers from Meon Junior School in Southsea were returning home from a school trip to London when the incident happened.
The Muslim coach driver stopped his vehicle in the middle of the Eastern Road, just before rush-hour, for 10 minutes while he conducted his daily prayer.
The man's actions have since been condemned by parents and Muslims in the city and have prompted an investigation by Cosham-based coach company Vision Travel.
