Parents’ fury after 50 pupils were left stranded on a coach when Muslim driver stopped on a main road and knelt down to pray

A Muslim coach driver has been criticised by parents when he stopped on a busy main road in rush hour to pray.

Halting the vehicle on the carriageway, he stepped off the coach, washed his feet and began to kneel on a prayer mat.

The 50 schoolchildren and teachers he was driving were left on board for ten minutes even though they were only a mile away from their destination in Southsea, Hampshire.
