A furious woman blocked a double-decker bus from moving before storming on board to launch a vile attack on a passenger in shocking footage.
The video, taken in Camden, London, on Friday, shows the woman standing in the middle of the road and refusing to budge after she reportedly missed the bus.
In the clip, filmed by Edward Adoo, 40, the woman grows increasingly enraged and shouts obscenities as she thumps on the window of the number 31 bus after the driver refused to let her on.

Mr Adoo, a broadcast journalist, from London, captured the shocking incident and say in the video: ‘This woman is not letting us go, she’s standing by the bus.
‘I did ask the driver to let her on but she’s being rude to him. So he currently can’t move because shes standing in front of the bus and I need to get home.
‘It’s really idiotic I don’t know why, this is the last thing anyone needs on a Friday evening. There’s other passengers who need to get home.’
The woman, who is laden with shopping bags, continues to protest in front of the double-decker as she shouts and swears through he window.

She then charges through the bus doors and appears to launch an attack at Mr Adoo.
As the driver tries to close the doors to keep her off the bus, her bags get caught and she yanks them free before hurling more abuse.
In a second video, the woman can be heard shouting expletives and trying to knock the phone from Mr Adoo’s hand as the driver tries to get her to leave.
She shouts: ‘Call the police now, stop f***king filming me. I’ll get arrested for this I’m a paying customer! Don’t mess about with me! Tell him to take that video off his phone now’.

Mr Adoo says the woman was being ‘incredibly rude’ and was ‘swearing and shouting’ at the driver.
He told MailOnline: ‘I was en route home, changed buses and jumped on the 31.
‘The bus was about to leave the stop the woman knocked on the door after the bus had left the stop. I got off my seat and politely asked the driver to let her on.
‘When I got to the area near the drivers cab I can hear her swearing and shouting at the driver. He said he was going to let her on but based on what she said he said she was being incredibly rude.’

Mr Adoo says he tried to plead with the woman to apologise to the driver, but she ‘didn’t listen’ and marched in front of the bus.
He told MailOnline: ‘I tried to plead with her to apologise to the driver but she didn’t listen and decided to block the bus.
‘I just wanted to get home. The driver switched his engine off. She refused to move. I then asked her to move she ignored me and then that’s when I started to film and what happened is what I put on my Twitter feed.
