The incident, which happened at 4pm on Friday on Southbury Road in Enfield, is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police.

The woman stops the bus doors from closing fully before the fight continues as the bus driver tries to stop her boarding the vehicle. Punches are thrown by both parties.

Another man intervenes to try and stop the fight before the video ends.
The Metropolitan Police said the bus driver had reported the incident about ten minutes later by flagging down officers.
The force have since received a counter allegation that it was the woman in the video who was assaulted.
They are investigating the incident further and are appealing for anyone with information to contact the police.
A Transport for London spokesperson said: ‘We were concerned to learn of an incident that took place on a route 192 bus and reported it to the police as soon as possible.
‘We are supporting Arriva’s urgent investigation into this very worrying incident.’
