A racist pensioner was beaten up on a London bus after branding passengers "monkeys".
Shocking footage shows the OAP being struck after appearing to racially abuse a group of black males in Edgware, North West London.
The argument ends with two young males viciously punching the old man on a 251 bus, leaving him with a black eye and bump on his head.
The 70-year-old man was taken to hospital suffering head injuries as police appealed for information after the bust-up near Enfield around 6pm yesterday.
Footage shows a black male who confronts the old man shouting: “We’re all monkeys, yeah? We’re all monkeys?”
The elderly man jabs a finger at him and yells: “You’re a monkey”.
The black man gets angrier after the racist slur as a girl films the furious exchange.
A woman in a mask is seen holding him back and saying “don’t touch him” as another woman races down the bus and tries to calm the flare-up.
One black male is heard challenging the elderly man to “come off the bus now” as the OAP gets to his feet to continue the row.
The young male shouts “I’M GOING TO END THIS N****R BRO!”
But his friends attempt to restrain him and beg him not to fight the old man saying “Don’t end him. Don’t end him. Don’t end him”.
He comes towards the pensioner who tries to swing a punch at the young man and fails.
The young male then repeatedly punches the pensioner in the head, as a second young male also starts hitting him.
A video of the flare-up was posted by Instagram by a user who claimed the man racially abused the passengers prior to the fight.
