Video captures the moment a bus driver gets into a violent fight with a woman who appears to be trying to get into his vehicle.
The incident, which happened at 4pm on Friday on Southbury Road in Enfield, is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police.
At the start of the video, the bus driver can be seen holding the woman in a headache at the entrance to the bus on route 192 towards Tottenham Hale.
It’s unclear who started the altercation or what caused the violent escalation.

Other women can be heard telling the bus driver and the woman to stop fighting and one tries to pull them apart.
One of the other women yells, ‘Stop f*****g touching her. Take her f**k off.
The bus driver kicks the girl from the step of her bus before appearing to try to close the doors.
The woman prevents the doors of the bus from closing completely before the fight continues as the bus driver attempts to prevent her from getting into the vehicle. Punches are thrown by both sides.

The bus driver tries to close the doors of the vehicle but the woman prevents him by grabbing the yellow bars and forcing the doors open.
The bus driver tries to push the woman’s hands out of the bars but she won’t let go, so the bus doors cannot close completely
Another man steps in to try and stop the fight before the video ends.
The Metropolitan Police said the bus driver reported the incident around ten minutes later to flagging officers.
The force has since received a counter-allegation that it was the woman in the video who was assaulted.
They are investigating the incident further and are asking anyone with information to contact the police.
A Transport for London spokesperson said: ‘We were concerned to hear of an incident on a route 192 bus and reported it to the police as soon as possible.
“We support Arriva’s urgent investigation into this very disturbing incident.”
