A YOUNG WOMAN is being sought by police after attacking a commuter over a dog on board a London bus on New Year’s Day.

The suspect, described as a “light-skinned black woman, aged between 23 to 33, slim and wearing a long light brown coat”, boarded route 118 bus travelling between Morden station and Brixton and objected to the pet being on board.
