The angry passenger filmed shoving and shouting at a bus driver he accused of not stopping for him in front of his young daughter was unapologetic today and hit back defiantly: 'I'm not apologising - he was in the wrong.'

Tyren Gee was caught on camera marching menacingly towards the driver, swearing at him repeatedly before pushing him with both hands.

Police have said they are aware of the footage filmed in Dagenham, East London on Saturday in which Mr Gee warned the driver he was 'coming back' for him.

The forklift operator today explained that he erupted in fury after the 364 bus failed to stop for him on a hail and ride section of the route.

He and his three-year-old daughter – who he had taken to the park – caught another bus after walking to a nearby stop and he later confronted the driver when he saw him on his break.

Video footage has revealed the shocking moment a bus driver is shoved and shouted at by an angry man, while his confused young daughter watches on

The father's anger comes to a head at this point and he shoves the driver with both hands. Escaping any further conflict, the bus driver steps down from the ledge, puts his hands in his pockets and stares at the enraged father from below

Mr Gee told MailOnline: 'He'd looked right at me through that giant windscreen of his bus and didn't stop even though I was with my young daughter.

'I was on Reede Road in Dagenham outside the parade of shops, it's part of the hail and ride section of the 364 bus route and it's a wide road with plenty of room to stop.

'But even though I stuck my arm out clearly, he carried on driving.

'I walked with my daughter to a bus stop and caught another bus home but the stop I get off is a rest point for drivers and the one who failed to stop for me earlier was on his break.

'I went over and had a word with him and he was trying to tell me that he hadn't seen me stick my arm out to hail the bus when I know that he did.

'That's what really p****d me off, all he wanted to do was hurry on through the street to get to his rest stop so he could sit on his a***.

'I shouldn't have gone for him like I did, I regret that but I'm not apologising because as far as I'm concerned he was in the wrong.

'I'd taken my daughter out for the day on Saturday to give my partner a break and it had been a nice afternoon, which ended on a sour note.'

The clip, posted to X, formerly Twitter, shows the confrontation yards away from where the 364 bus is parked up.

Dressed in a leather jacket with a red cap and sunglasses, Mr Gee can initially be heard shouting aggressively at the driver, who tries to argue back that he had not seen him.

The man then begins to walk away from the scene but not before he uses more expletives and points aggressively again at the driver

But with his confused-looking daughter standing just a few yards behind him, Mr Gee then walks up very close to the busman and says: 'I'll tell you what, I'm going to drop my kid off...and you're on this route all f****** day, I'm going to f****** come for you, you little p****.'

He then shouts: 'Do you understand? Do you understand?'

By now the bus driver has decided to stop responding and remains silent during the interrogation prompting the irate father to shove him with both hands.

The man filming on his phone intervenes and says 'that is assault' and advises the bus driver to 'not do anything' and 'just leave him'.

Escaping any further conflict, the bus driver steps down from the ledge, puts his hands in his pockets and stares up at Mr Gee who begins to walk away but stops and points aggressively again at the driver.

He adds: 'He's seen me put me arm out outside the shop. He literally carried on f****** driving.

'I've got a three-year-old, I'm coming back for you, you p****.'

He shouts back at the driver as he walks off and says: 'Probably catch you at Ilford, yeah?'

The clip, which has received over 1.6million views on X, was posted on Saturday.

The 364 bus runs between Dagenham East and Hainault Street in the centre of Ilford in East London.

A Met Police spokesman said: 'Police are aware of the footage and in contact with Transport for London.

'Anyone who can identify the man seen confronting the bus driver in the video is asked to call 101 or message @MetCC quoting ref 5526/31Mar'.
