A man caused a stir in Bexleyheath this afternoon by standing in the road and refusing to move out of the way of a bus.

Bexley police officers were forced to confront the man who missed his bus by a few seconds and so ran into Townley Road to stop it.

A stand-off ensued before coppers intervened and gave the man 20 seconds to move.

However, during the countdown, the man realised it wasn’t his bus after all and moved onto the pavement.

He was heard saying: “I’ve just realised it’s not my bus.”

Hannahtrevenax tweeted: “This man refused to move out the way of the bus and then had a fight with a policeman, good old Bexleyheath.”

A Met spokesman said: “Police attended at 2.19pm and removed a man who insisted on standing in front of a bus.

“He then agreed to move.”

Ha! Still though if it was his bus why not let him on? That route is only every half an hour isn't it so a bit of leeway to people should be given.

The world moves faster as you grow older. The youth are going to experience life when they get old at four times the speed just to keep up with the rat race chasing artifical debt.

That had a frequency of one every ten minutes during the middle of the day so pull the over one!

A few seconds makes all the difference. If every bus waited for everyone running a shade later, nobody would get anywhere. Typical old person thinking the world owes them something.

The photograph...

Nice to see typical 'think of myself' attitudes reflected in the post likes. No empathy at all for those that have a responsibility to keep those buses running to time. People don't have a right to expect people to wait for them... And from experience, 269 drivers are very polite & will wait. This driver was clearly up against it and couldn't.

A fight with a policeman? Really?

No doubt Hannahtrevenax witnessed the entire incident

Run the bugger over would probably kill him, it is a bus. I hope you don't use logic much, you're not very good at it.

What an arrogant bloke. The bus runs to a timetable. Doesn't matter if he was 30 secs or 5 secs late. The point is don't be late and then there's no problem.

Always amazes me that people run alongside a bus banging on the door expecting it to stop and let them on. These same people don't run alongside trains or tubes banging on the drivers cab to get him to stop so why do they think they can do it with a moving bus. Then if the driver stops for them they start searching for their bus pass/fare delaying the bus even more.

PS: For all you bus users from 6th July the buses will no longer accept cash fares, so you need to make sure your Oyster always has credit or carry a contactless debit card.
