Several buses which vulnerable children depended on vandalised at Goole depot

16 buses were vandalised on Tuesday evening, leaving hundreds of special needs children were left stranded. 

The vital buses were used to transport vulnerable and disabled children to special needs schools across the region. 

The East Riding Council depot in Goole was broken into on Tuesday evening, with buses being broken into and parts stolen. This meant the buses were unable to be used on Wednesday, leaving many school children without transport. Many children and their families rely on the bus service for their safety and many parents were left frustrated and annoyed. 

The service is now back up and running as usual. 

East Riding Council have reported the break in to Humberside Police who are investigating and are looking for people with information.

A spokeswoman from Humberside police said: “We are actively investigating this report and would ask that anyone who may have information that could assist with our ongoing enquiries to get in touch with us on our non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference number 16/61487/20.”
