A MAN has admitted trying to puncture the tyres of a bus outside a hospital using a pitchfork.

Gordon Duncan, 55, of Dundee, was thrown off the vehicle after he tried to board it while carrying the garden implement.

Duncan then started smashing the fork off the side of the bus, before witnesses saw him trying to stab the front tyres with the tool.
