Police are still hunting the man who stabbed an Exmouth bus driver in an unprovoked attack in Budleigh.

Police have issued this e-fit picture of the man they believe stabbed Kevin White, 55, of Pound Lane, in South Farm Road at around 8.20pm on October 25.

The attacker is described as white, aged over 25, with a slim to medium build and long, dark hair just off the collar. He had a bony, pale and clean shaven face, and was wearing a distinctive green parka-style coat with a longer back, tapering into a fishtail.

If you can help police with their investigation, contact DC Michael Chalmers on 101, quoting crime reference KE/12/2499. If you see the suspect, dial 999. Members of the public should not approach him, for their own safety.
