A taller man can be seen appearing to defend himself as he holds the wrist of a smaller man clutching the knife by the bus' front door.
The pair then wrestle just in front of the driver’s cabin on the new red double decker bus as another passenger films the gory incident.
Suddenly the taller man manages to rip the knife out of the other man’s clutches and the small man sprints out of the bus’ middle door and down the pavement towards a BP petrol station.
A shocked woman is seen stepping off the bus and pointing at the tall man as she says he is cut.
The camera then pans on to the man who is now holding the large knife, and has blood coming out of a few cuts on his wrist and hand.
He then says: “Do you want to call the police?”
