A 41-YEAR-OLD man has appeared in court accused of robbing a bus driver in Huddersfield earlier this week.

Joseph Cummings, of Riddings Close, Sheepridge, is charged with robbing First Bus driver Eric Abbott of £75 in cash in Keldregate, Bradley, on Monday night.

Bradford magistrates refused bail.

Cummings was remanded in custody to appear before Bradford Crown Court in a week.

Reporting restrictions were not lifted.

Bus operators halted services in the Bradley area after buses were hit by two alleged robberies.

They plan to review their decision.
