This shocking CCTV footage shows a thug repeatedly punching a man on a bus in Harlesden because he did not have a lighter.

The attacker shouted at his victim for five minutes before reining a number of blows leaving him needing hospital treatment for a bloody nose and cuts to his lip.

The victim was attacked on the 18 bus in the High Street after he told the man he did not smoke when asked for a lighter.

The same man is believed to be behind a second attack 45 minutes later on another number 18 bus travelling in the opposite direction in Marylebone.

A father travelling with his daughter was punched and headbutted on Marylebone Road.
