The images have been released after the incident took place on June 7th.

At around 9am, the driver stopped the ACTIV8 bus on Castle Street in Salisbury after he became aware that a dog was sick and defecated on the top floor. 

When he pulled over, the animal's owner came downstairs and verbally and racially abused him. 

Two passengers then chased away the man, while the driver was being reassured by someone else. 

Wiltshire Police have now renewed their appeal for information and have released CCTV images from the incident.
