A police Facebook post afterwards said: “Over the last two weeks we’ve had several reports that the passenger of a car had been using foul and abusive language and hand gestures towards schoolchildren waiting at a bus stop on Shrubbs Hill in Lyndhurst.

“This morning we stopped that car and have issued the passenger with a community resolution for the public order offence and the driver has been given a Section 59 warning.
