A bus carrying passengers in Salford has been damaged after it came under attack by a gang of youths throwing bricks and snowballs.

The incident happened at about 17:00 GMT on Saturday on Churchill Way, close to Salford Shopping Centre.

Sam Moran, 21, who was a passenger, said: "I was terrified. There were elderly women on the bus and a small child. One woman had an asthma attack."

Greater Manchester Police said no arrests had been made.
