The 38-year-old woman was waiting at a bus stop for a 145 on Ballards Lane with her children when a man stood next to her and started smoking.

He became abusive and threatened them when she challenged him.

Detectives have today released a CCTV still of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident on November 11 last year.

He is a black man, aged in his 30s, who was wearing jeans and a distinctive black leather jacket with red writing on the back and the words ‘Sean John’ over the shoulder.
