FOUR pensioners have been warned today they could be BANNED from buses in Ipswich because of their "unacceptable" behaviour.

Victor Francis, 87, his brothers George, 74, and Percy, 71, and George's partner Olive Lambert, 74, have been accused of acting like children – despite their age.

Drivers claim the pensioners have verbally abused passengers and staff over a period of more than six months.

Police have been called to at least one incident and the group has been warned it is one step away from being barred for life.

"Their behaviour and attitude towards our drivers and customers is totally unacceptable and there have been times when they have been removed from our vehicles," Ipswich Buses managing director Malcolm Robson said today.
